“Women Like You” Leadership Symposium

At Chico State, women don’t whisper… they ROAR. The first inaugural “Women Like You” Leadership Symposium on February 15th, 2019 gathers the campus community with distinguished female leaders to share stories and discuss topics designed to inspire and empower all. With highlights from our own, Chico State faculty and staff will tell their personal stories of success and failure, sharing their journeys of resilience and rise as a woman in today’s social climate, as we celebrate women in all stages of their careers.

Speakers and participants in the event include our very own University President, Gayle Hutchinson, Provost Debra Larson, Associated Students Associate Executive Director, Jamie Clyde, Tracy Butts, Chela Patterson, Jeni Kitchell, Sandi Parsons-Ellis, and many more.

Drop in at your convenience between 10 AM – 2 PM
Estimated time commitment: 1 hour
No registration required. Due to the nature of the event, seating will be limited but will transition regularly as people enter and exit the symposium.

During the event, enrolled student attendees can enter to win from a pool of $5000 in textbook scholarship funds redeemable at the Chico State Wildcat Store. Scholarships are redeemable through January 2020.
