Launched in 2017, the Elizabeth Dole Women in Leadership Lecture features women who break barriers, make significant contributions to their fields and reach positions of leadership. Guest speakers are leaders who exemplify perseverance, motivation, innovative thinking and the ability to overcome challenges.
This signature series is named for former U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole, in honor of her long career in public service. Dole served as commissioner on the Federal Trade Commission, U.S. Secretary of Transportation, U.S. Secretary of Labor, president of the American Red Cross and a U.S. senator representing the state of North Carolina. Her career papers have been gifted to the Dole Institute Archive and Special Collections and will soon be available to researchers, students and scholars.
