Spring 2017: Latina Leaders 

Event took place on Monday, March 27th, 5:30pm-7:00pm @ USU Ballroom

Background & Purpose

In April 2016, President Karen Haynes met with University Council members Rita Brandin (Senior Vice President, Development Director at Newland Communities) and Linda Bailey (President of Community Strategies Group) to discuss an idea for a co-curricular, distinguished speaker series featuring successful women. The intended goal is to feature successful women leaders and provide a forum for the women to share their career journeys/paths, particularly in nontraditional fields/sectors.

All CSUSM students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend for free. Community members are invited to attend for a nominal $10 fee which will include the cost of parking. 

Women Breaking Boundaries Speaker Series events will consist of a panel of 3-5 women. For each event, we will have a common thread or theme. Following a one-hour, moderated panel discussion, time will be allotted for questions from the audience. At the culmination of the panel program, an opportunity for networking will be provided with light refreshments. All events will be recorded for future viewing.
