REF NO.: 119

SUBJECT: Women and Careers: What’s Holding You Back?
DATE: March 7, 2008

Memorial alumni are invited to a provocative, interactive discussion on how ambition plays out in the lives and minds of working women.
On Thursday, March 13, at 7:30 p.m., facilitator and communications consultant Lil Blume will look at the sources of women's ambitions and how our own attitudes and the attitudes of others influence our personal and professional decisions.
At this event, Ms. Blume will explore how men can support ambition in their female friends and family members. She will also help answer why women feel ambivalent towards aspects of ambition; why it is frustrating when they are encouraged or pressured to be more ambitious and what are the factors that affect attitudes towards ambition and recognition.
