On March 3, scholars, policymakers, and entrepreneurs convened at Northeastern to discuss the advancement of women in the fields of entrepreneurship, leadership, and public policy. The half-day symposium was organized by Northeastern professors Alicia Sasser Modestino and Jamie Ladge, and the program consisted of three themed panel discussions: first, “Entrepreneurship (What Barriers and Opportunities Exist that Prevent Women from Advancing on their Own?)” followed by “Women and Leadership (Who’s responsible for work-life balance? What can Employers do to Advance the Talent Pipeline?)” and finally, “Public Policy: (How can State and Municipal Government Level the Playing Field?)” The Boston Globe‘s Katie Johnston moderated the symposium.
