Women’s advocate Wilson to speak on leadership gap

Women’s advocate Wilson to speak on leadership gap

At the end of Eleanor Roosevelt’s life, she is said to have asked her doctor if anything she had done had mattered. Even a first lady, a woman whose accomplishments were numerous, needed validation. Marie Wilson points to this moment as an example of women demeaning themselves, a small piece of a gender gap in leadership that Wilson is fighting to reduce.

Wilson, a longtime women’s leadership advocate, author and professional, will speak at 3 p.m. Saturday in the Hall of Philosophy. Her lecture, titled “Closing the Leadership Gap,” is part of the Contemporary Issues Forum, a speaker series sponsored by the Chautauqua Women’s Club.
