WLMP Orientation 2015

Recent Comments



The Women’s Leadership & Mentorship Program has had a great start to the 2015-2016 year!  We welcomed a new class of freshman cohort members, peer mentors and faculty/staff mentors at our orientation program on August 16th.  Our total roster now includes 92 students and 43 faculty and staff mentors representing schools and departments across campus.

Orientation also featured an engaging panel discussion, “Women & Work-Life Balance.”  Our distinguished panelists included: Sarah Burns (Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc.); Erin Isler (PNC Debt Capital Markets); Margaret Larkins-Pettigrew (University Hospitals of Cleveland and RMU Trustee); Tory Parrish (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review); Monda Williams (Allegheny County Department of Human Services).

After lunch, the Rolling Cones ice cream truck stopped by to to relieve us on a very hot summer day.

We’d also like to thank President David Jamison who joined us to give opening remarks and hang out in our photo booth!
