Dec. 6 Panel: ‘Empowerment of Women in Academia’ with Georgia Visitors

| November 30, 2012

Webster University welcomes six university leaders from the central Asian country of Georgia as part of the Open World program examining “Empowerment of Women in Academia” on Thursday, Dec. 6, noon – 1:30 p.m., in the Winifred Moore Auditorium.

Managed by the Open World Leadership Center, a support agency of the United States Congress, the Open World program is designed to enhance understanding and capabilities for cooperation between the United States and the countries of Eurasia. The organization does this through the development of a network of leaders in the region who have gained significant, firsthand exposure to America’s democratic, accountable government and free-market system.

Six women leaders from Georgia will be joining a panel comprised of four women leaders at Webster University: Nancy Hellerud, associate provost; Jennifer Broeder, chair and associate professor in the Nursing Department; Nicole Roach, director of the Old Post Office campus location; and Katherine Krajcovic, director of Operations in Enrollment Management & Student Affairs. Thao Dang-Williams, associate dean for the College of Arts & Sciences, will serve as moderator for the panel.

The Webster community is encouraged to attend this free event, which is also open to the public.
