A longtime student of women in leadership, she’s at the helm for this series examining women leaders in public service and business and their countless accomplishments. Each Tuesday of the semester, Lloyd will welcome different guests for a discussion on the bold and unique paths they’ve taken throughout their careers.

She is currently a senior district representative for a California state senator and owns her own company, Altamont Strategies, which oversees government affairs, events, advocacy and development. Lloyd has a particular interest in women in leadership and public service, the topic of her fall Study Group series.
