Webster University President Beth Stroble was both featured speaker and de facto on-campus host as the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Women’s Leadership Initiative held a “Cocktails & Conversation with Dr. Elizabeth Stroble” event in the East Academic Building (EAB) on Webster’s home campus.
The series is presented by the Women’s Leadership Initiative of ULI St. Louis as part of its efforts to raise the visibility and number of women leaders in ULI and the real estate industry overall. The organization invited Stroble to speak as a regional leader advancing global diversity and inclusion.
In her prepared remarks, President Stroble spoke about her own personal leadership journey, which took her from being a high school teacher to university administrator to her position as Webster University president in 2009.
Her travels have taken her from the Midwest to around the world, whether visiting Webster’s international campuses or furthering expanded partnerships in new locations.
This journey, she explained, helps her feels comfortable wherever she is in the world. “My sense of place is multiple places,” she said. “I hope to help our students embrace their own sense of place(s).”
The ULI Women’s Leadership Initiative was formed in 2010 to recognize, promote and value women in leadership. About 60 people attended the talk and reception in the EAB.
