2018-19 Session 1: Women in Leadership: Exploring the Gender Gap Registration

2018-19 Session 2: OwnIt. EarnIt. GiveIt Registration

Session 1
Tuesday, October 23, 7:30 - 9:15 a.m.

Maria Triana and Nizida Arriaga, moderated by Binnu Palta Hill
Women in Leadership: Exploring the Gender Gap

Women continue to face challenges as they advance to leadership positions, and encounter cultural norms in the workplace that are at times at odds with their authority. These challenges range from equal pay (in the United States in 2018, women earn 80 cents for every dollar a man earns) to every day subtle messages that question female leadership (24% of executive positions in the corporate sector are held by White women, and less than 5% are held by women of color.)

In this session, we will discuss these issues both from an academic perspective as well as from lived experience. Professor Mary Triana researches diversity in organizations, and Nizida Arriaga, a WSB MBA alumna is one of the few Latinas to have held high ranking positions in the financial investment industry (most recently as Managing Director at Nuveen Investments.) They will reflect on their experiences and share insights on overcoming gender issues that are subtle but have profound effects on both men and women in an organization.

This panel discussion will be facilitated by Binnu Palta Hill, Assistant Dean of Diversity and Inclusion at the Wisconsin School of Business at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Session 2
Wednesday, April 24, 7:30 - 9:15 a.m.

Mollie Bell, 4everMoxi™ and Chief Engagement Officer at Credit Union National Association, Inc. (CUNA)
OwnIt. EarnIt. GiveIt.™

What is it anyway? It is leadership and we all lead. Through stories of disappointment and triumph, this inspirational, candid, and reflective discussion and workshop will introduce you to the theory of deeply understanding your leadership story; owning your authentic self; and, applying your knowledge to create a path for your future success and those around you.
