Samuel Cooper, newly appointed regional academic director at Webster’s Greenville campus in South Carolina, designated 2010-11 as the campus’s Academic Year of Women in Leadership.

A series of management summit events were scheduled to take a closer look at the topic, and presentations were made throughout the year, including: “Women’s Leadership in the Workplace: A Historical Perspective,” by Maria Kithcart, community relations coordinator; “Women’s Leadership in Counseling,” by Videra Varnadore, adjunct professor and couseling coordinator, and Mary Jo McInerny, adjunct professor and academic advisor; and “Ten Ways Women Sabotage Their Leadership Success,” by Lorraine Henderson, adjunct professor and SBT program coordinator.

A significant number of local human resources professionals and counselors attended the sessions, which were approved for SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) continuing education credits.

Lorraine Henderson will teach the culmination class, MNGT 5870, this summer at the Greenville campus. The Issues in Management course is a three-credit graduate course designed to increase women’s expertise in achieving success in leadership through a theoretical, issues-oriented analysis of problems facing women in today’s organizations.
