Provost's Lecture Series on Women in Leadership

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 ( 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm )

Location: Stevens Institute of Technology, Babbio 122 and online via Blackboard Collaborate

The Provost’s Lecture Series on Women in Leadership is designed to showcase the achievements of prominent and successful women and to motivate the next generation of leaders. It provides an opportunity for women to share their individual experiences and to analyze the unique strengths, challenges and opportunities they face. The women selected for this series are true visionaries from which we can all learn.

This fall, Linda Sanford, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Transformation at IBM, will join the list of Stevens' distinguished speakers presenting her talk The Transformative Leader: Strategies for Leading in Times of Change.

In the past several years advances in technology and a sustained period of sluggish economic growth have disrupted industry landscapes permanently. And yet this period of discontinuity is also a period of opportunity – for exceptional leaders. New leaders are emerging who have the ability to guide their organizations through a challenging period and arrive stronger on the other side. 

What characteristics do these leaders share? How are they applying technology creatively to make smarter decisions? How are they inspiring their people to accomplish game-changing innovation in a time of uncertainty?  

Linda Sanford – who rose through the engineering ranks to become a senior leader at IBM – will reflect on her own experience leading major change efforts inside her organization and working with change leaders at organizations around the world.

Attendance for this event is open to all Stevens faculty, students, staff and invited guests.
