SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The University of Notre Dame president says contributions and achievements of women across a range of fields will be the focus of a year-long series of events focusing on women in leadership through the Notre Dame Forum.
The Rev. John Jenkins says the goal is to create opportunities for the Notre Dame community to learn from the personal accounts of women who have risen to the top of their professions.
In the first event Sept. 16, Michele Flournoy, a former undersecretary of defense under President Barack Obama, and Gen. Ann Dunwoody, the first woman to achieve the four-star rank, will be featured in a conversation moderated by Anne Thompson of NBC News.
The Notre Dame Forum was established when Jenkins was inaugurated as the university president in 2005.
