Top Scholar to Speak at Pitt

The University of Pittsburgh's Johnson Institute for Responsible Leadership will present a lecture Thursday, September 18th by Alice Eagly, a professor of psychology at Northwestern University and one of the nation's top scholars on gender and leadership. Eagly's speech is titled "Women and the Labyrinth of Leadership." The professor is well-known for her shift of the metaphor describing women's quest for leadership from the "glass ceiling" to the "labyrinth." Eagly says the truth of the matter is that there is no single impetus such as a glass ceiling to women's leadership, but that there are multiple obstacles. The lecture begins at 4:30 on Thursday and is free to the public, but preregistration is requested.
