Symposium on Women and Work: “Throwing out the Rule Book: Lessons from Women who Lead in Male-Dominated Workplaces”

In April 2000, the Heldrich Center co-sponsored a conference, with Rutgers University’s Center for Women and Work, to explore ways to permanently eliminate workplace barriers for women, to end gender inequity, and to realize the full potential of America’s workforce. The conference featured a keynote address by Debra E. Meyerson (School of Education, Stanford University), and a panel discussion with Barbara Lee (Dean, School of Management and Labor Relations, Rutgers University), Ann Logan (Bryn Mawr College), Hannah Storm (The Early Show on CBS), and Dr. Meyerson.
