The panel of University of Richmond leaders will discuss challenges, achievements and industry-wide issues women face as leaders in higher education. The event is Feb. 21, 4:30 p.m., Jepson Hall, Room 118. The event is free and open to the public.

The four panelists include:

  • Jacque Fetrow, professor of chemistry and former provost
  • Dee Hardy, associate vice president for campus services

  • Jamelle Wilson, dean, School of Professional and Continuing Studies

The moderators for the event are Elizabeth Schlatter, deputy director and curator of exhibitions for University Museums, and Kelly Shaw, associate professor of computer science.

“I’m excited to learn about the choices the panelists have made to form their impressive careers, difficulties they’ve encountered and overcome and advice they have for navigating careers in colleges and universities,” said Schlatter.

The Women and Leadership reading group provides a forum where faculty and staff can discuss and share thoughts about recent articles that focus on women leaders. The group has a special focus on higher education.
