Dr. Jason Pearson
Women in Leadership Speaker Series
When two St. Charles East freshmen noticed they were only part of a small number of girls in their Introduction to Business class, they decided to find a way to encourage more girls to be interested in business. The Women in Business Speaker Series was formed. In this episode, Dr. Pearson talks with now juniors Natalie Gibbard and Elyse Jens about how their series has evolved into Women In Leadership and what the students who attended the forums both in person and virtually have learned from the women leaders who have shared their stories. Natalie and Elyse also talk about the ways in which this experience had helped them develop skills they will use throughout their lives.
