State Senator Patty Ritchie is reminding people from throughout Central and Northern New York that ‘Ladies Who Lead,’ a special event featuring a keynote address by SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher and a panel discussion with local women at the top of their career fields, will take place Tuesday evening at SUNY Oswego.
The event is being sponsored by the Upstate Women’s Leadership Council (UWLC), a group formed last year that is made up of local leaders and led by Senator Ritchie, along with Rep. Elise Stefanik and former Jefferson County District Attorney Cindy Intschert.
The group aims to increase opportunities for the personal and professional advancement of women throughout the Central and Northern New York regions.
“No matter what stage of our lives we are in, each and every one of us holds experiences, knowledge and insights that when shared, can have a positive impact on others,” said Senator Ritchie. “That’s what this event is all about, bringing area leaders together to empower one another, celebrate our accomplishments and gain motivation that will help us to attain even greater goals.”
‘Ladies Who Lead’ will begin at 5 p.m. at SUNY Oswego’s Marano Campus Center auditorium (Room 132).
The evening will begin with Chancellor Zimpher’s address, followed by a panel discussion that will include the following participants:
SUNY Oswego President Deborah Stanley;
