Joan’s Approach

Women and Leadership – a Talk with Harvard Women

In November I gave a talk at Harvard on “Women and Leadership –Current Challenges and Paths Forward” for the Alumnae/-i Network for Harvard Women (ANHW).

We held a spirited conversation that included recent graduates of Harvard College, women who were students at Radcliffe in the 60’s and 70’s, and alumnae of the Harvard graduate schools.
