ANY & WWN Women’s Leadership Series: Mary Lui, Professor & Head of Timothy Dwight College

Asian Network at Yale (ANY) and Yale’s Working Women’s Network (WWN) jointly sponsor the 2019 Women’s Leadership Series. The focus of the Women’s Leadership Series is to bring together a diverse mix of Yale’s own successful women leaders who, through the discussion of topics relevant to today’s issues, will inspire and encourage women to reflect on their own goals and status as they strive to advance in their careers and lives. The format for the Leadership Series will consist of a moderated discussion with the speaker that will delve into topics of interest in which the speaker will share her personal and professional perspectives on questions. The themes of the series are Leadership, Identity, Career, Well-being, and Service.
