Women Discuss Their Career Paths on March 3

02/02/2010 

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 Wednesday, March 3, at SUNY Cortland.

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

“No two career paths looks exactly alike,” said the event organizer for Women’s Initiatives, Karen Seibert, assistant director of the Center for Educational Exchange. “Each person’s experience is based on personal passions, talents, interests, needs, priorities and maybe a bit of luck. Come celebrate Women’s History Month by learning how several talented women at SUNY Cortland have charted their unique and successful career courses.”

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

Panelists include Dianne Bays, supervising janitor, custodial services; Amy Berg, associate provost, information resources; Kimberly Potter Ireland ’97, senior government relations representative for National Grid and a SUNY Cortland College Council member; Sharon Steadman, associate professor of sociology/anthropology and coordinator of the International Studies Program; and Rita Wright, director of the YWCA’s Aid to Victims of Violence and a SUNY Cortland lecturer in health.

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