Walden University Holds Speaker Series to Celebrate Women’s History Month


Walden University

Faculty members highlight remarkable female leaders who inspired them to be agents of change

In celebration of National Women’s History Month, Walden University will hold an online speaker series to commemorate the achievements of women—past and present—who have transformed the world with their vision and courage. Every Wednesday evening in March, Walden faculty members will share remarkable stories and accomplishments of women leaders who have advanced their professions and inspired them personally to do the same.

“This speaker series is part of a proud tradition at Walden of promoting the power of positive social change,” said Dr. Cynthia Baum, president of Walden University. “By recognizing exceptional female leaders, we hope to inspire a new generation of women to acquire the skills and knowledge to make an impact on future generations in communities around the world.”

Congress first passed a resolution 25 years ago to dedicate the month of March to celebrating the unique contributions of women in history. The webinars will continue that tradition and feature the following Walden faculty and inspiring female leaders:
