Connecticut Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz will be the guest speaker at Quinnipiac University’s ”Women in Leadership” panel discussion at 5 p.m.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Mount Carmel Auditorium. It will include a question-and-answer period.

The panel also will include Quinnipiac’s Sujata Gadkar-Wilcox, associate professor of legal studies; Kiku Jones, professor of computer information systems and co-director of the People's United Center for Women & Business; and QU seniors Ana Allen, Ohidiani Imevbore and Ambar Pagan.

“The panel will focus on the experiences of women who are leading public figures, leaders on campus, and who lead organizations that focus on community building and empowerment,” Gadkar-Wilcox said. “While every individual experience is different, there is a common thread among women in these positions that often includes persistence in making yourself heard, determination to create a pipeline for other women who are becoming leaders, and the ability to overcome the struggles that come with gaps in representation and understanding of these unique experiences.”

The event is co-sponsored by Quinnipiac’s Albert Schweitzer Institute and the People's United Center for Women & Business.

“Women are making strides, but there is still a lot of work to do before the workplace is truly equitable,” Jones added. “Panels like these are important to help women as they are trying to navigate the workplace.”
