The Next Generation of Leaders

Assumption College has created the Women’s Leadership Forum, a new initiative of the College’s Office of Institutional Advancement, Business Studies Department and Career Services Office. The Women’s Forum seeks to promote professional networking, leadership development and professional advancement opportunities among Assumption College students, alumnae, parents and other members of the college community by sponsoring networking events, presentations and mentoring opportunities.

The goal of the Women’s Forum, according to Linda Rosenlund ’82, one of the founders, is to assist the development of Assumption’s female students by providing a community of alumnae and parent mentors to advise, support and share professional experiences and best practices with each other and with the students. The Women’s Forum also will seek to identify and address the challenges facing women in leadership positions and advance the emerging leadership roles of professional women in the nonprofit and entrepreneurial fields, as well as in government and the corporate world.

“We’re proud of the success of Assumption’s alumnae,” notes Rosenlund. “The Women’s Leadership Forum provides a way for alumnae to stay connected to Assumption, network, and encourage and provide support for our next generation of leaders.”
