4:00pm – 6:00pm Conflict Mediation Workshop with President Laurie Patton (in Hillcrest)

Have you ever felt ‘stuck’ in a difficult situation? Do tough conversations give you anxiety? Negotiations don’t have to cause stress. Come hear from the President of Middlebury College, an expert in national and international conflict mediation. In the past, she has trained students at Emory University and Duke University. Don’t miss the chance to learn from her at Middlebury.

Friday January 19, 2018

12:00pm – 1:30pm Lean In Discussion (in Hillcrest)

Join female students, faculty/staff, townspeople, and alumnae in a College-wide discussion on the role of women in 2018. Modeled after a “Lean In Circle,” we will discuss whether women need to lean in to the workplace or if opting out is a better solution for today’s feminists. We invite women from all generations and backgrounds to join this conversation so that we may have a range of perspectives – networking encouraged too! Light refreshments will be provided.

5:00pm – 6:30pm Keynote by Nancy Gibbs (in Wilson Hall)

Nancy Gibbs is the most recent Editor in Chief of TIME Magazine. She was the first woman to hold the position, and has written more cover stories for TIME than any other writer. In the last year at TIME, Ms. Gibbs started a project called the FIRSTS project, which features women who have changed the world by being the first females to receive notoriety in their field. She interviewed women such as Hillary Clinton, Madeleine Albright, Nobel laureate Elizabeth Blackburn, Sheryl Sandberg, and Aretha Franklin – among others. She has co-written two best-selling presidential histories, and she oversaw the domestic, international and tablet editions of TIME. Gibbs graduated from Yale summa cum laude, with honors in history, and has a degree in politics and philosophy from Oxford, where she was a Marshall scholar.

Please join the community for a dialogue between Middlebury Women Leaders President, Erin Van Gessel ’17.5, and Ms. Gibbs, followed by Q&A with the audience. Ms. Gibbs will speak about her career and discuss what it takes to get ahead as a woman in the workplace.

4:00pm-5:00pm Women’s Rights Discussion with Abenaki Women (in Hillcrest)

Join Middlebury Women Leaders for a discussion of women’s rights with women from the local Nulhegan Abenaki Native American tribe. Our hope is to host a conversation that compares and contrasts Western feminism with other traditions of feminism. We will explore differences in matriarchal vs patriarchal traditions with our Abenaki guests.

8:00pm-9:30pm She Should Walk Fashion Show (in Wilson Hall)

Today, only 20% of seats in U.S. Congress are held by women. That ranks the United States as101st on the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU)’s list of female representation in legislatures around the world. Organizations like She Should Run are trying to change that. She Should Run is a non-partisan 501(c)3 based in Washington, DC that recruits and trains women to run for political office. Since the 2016 election, more than 15,000 women have contacted She Should Run interested in entering government.

Please join Middlebury Women Leaders and the College community at our “She Should Walk” Fashion Show, where we will fund raise for She Should Run before the 2018 midterm elections. Cheer on our female students who walk the catwalk in outfits from Middlebury’s female student-run business, Share to Wear. The event will also feature appearances and statements from local female politicians, in addition to young women in the Middlebury community.

There is no charge to attend the event, but we will be accepting suggested donations and facilitating the sale of She Should Run gifts and apparel.
