Women Discuss Their Career Paths on March 24

03/17/2011 

A panel of five talented women will share how their individual paths led them to SUNY Cortland during the second annual Women’s Paths to Success presentation on Thursday, March 24, at the College.

Sponsored by the campus group Women’s Initiatives in celebration of Women’s History Month, the discussion will take place from 3-4:30 p.m. in Brockway Hall Jacobus Lounge.

“Each person’s career path is different and driven by personal history, talents, needs, priorities, supporters, nay-sayers and, perhaps, some good fortune,” said Karen Seibert, assistant director of the Center for Educational Exchange. “Come be inspired by five talented women and learn how their varied paths, one short and some others very long, brought them to SUNY Cortland.”

Jena Curtis, an associate professor of health and coordinator of human services, will moderate the panel discussion.

Panelists include:

• Mary Kate Boland, assistant director for leadership and community development, campus activities and Corey Union

• Jamie Dangler, associate professor of sociology/anthropology

• Vicki Johnson, protestant chaplain at the Interfaith Center

• Virginia Levine, executive assistant to the president

• Sherry Snell, secretary II, Physical Education Department (retired)

Event co-sponsors include the Committee on the Status and Education of Women/Women’s Initiatives, the Affirmative Action Committee, the Center for Gender and Intercultural Studies, the Gender Implementation Team, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Committee, the President’s Office and Women’s Studies.
