The New Women's Institute at Chatham University
Presented by AAUW
Women may have come a long way, but they still face obstacles on many fronts, especially in workforce and business development, politics and government, and in the health professions at the leadership level. The Women’s Institute at Chatham University was launched in 2015 to tackle these and other social inequalities and to help advance women’s excellence in today’s challenging economy. Jessie Ramey, the Women’s Institute’s first director, will explain the role the institute expects to play within the context of the university’s mission. And she’ll share with the audience some of their hopes and goals for Chatham’s graduates. Dr. Ramey is a historian, teacher, award-winning author – and mom. A former instructor at the University of Pittsburgh and researcher at Carnegie Mellon University, Jessie now serves on Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto’s Task Force on Education in addition to her responsibilities as the new Women’s Institute’s director. The public is welcome to attend this free AAUW-sponsored presentation. AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, philanthropy, education, and research.
