The Women’s Leadership Series – Women Empowering Women – officially launched in October 2018 under the Center for Public & Nonprofit Management and Senator Grace L. Drake's Ohio Center for the Advancement of Women in Public Service. The series was created to engage and empower public & nonprofit sector leaders throughout Northeast Ohio, while promoting the concept of gender representation at all levels of leadership.
The theme – “Women Empowering Women” – hones in on the notion that women should support, empower, and mentor one another. The series’ programming is strategically designed to capitalize on this theme of empowerment within sectors where political pressures are at play, resources remain tight, and the competition to rise to executive leadership endures.
For more information about the series, please contact Alexandra Higl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shortly after the creation of the series, an advisory committee comprised of 15 female leaders in the public & nonprofit sectors was assembled to co-design upcoming programming with the Center’s staff. The members hold executive and management level positions at organizations including, but not limited to, The City Mission, Greater Cleveland Partnership, the City of Brooklyn, University Hospital, City Year, and the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority. On average, the committee meets once a month.
