Are You Considering Running for Public Office?

The University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy is launching a new executive education program, Women in Public Leadership, for women who want to break through the glass ceiling, increase their power and influence, and help make the world a better place. The intensive five-day program, on Nov 16-20, brings together a faculty of distinguished academic scholars along with well-known women leaders who can offer battle-tested strategic advice on overcoming gender bias, building on success, recovering from failure, and taking your place in the public square. The course fee includes tuition for the certificate-granting program, books, curricular materials, meals and special events. Early bird, group and alumnae discounts are available. Women who wish to join this inaugural cohort of exceptional leaders may learn more or register online at

The Social Enterprise Initiative at Chicago Booth held their second annual OnBoard conference earlier this year where Finding that fit was the subject of a recent session led by two veterans of nonprofit boards. Read the Chicago Booth news article describing the points that were made in the session. They make good sense.
