Rasmussen College Hosts 10th Annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast
Attendees to hear from New York Times bestselling author Austin Channing Brown on racial justice in America
Minneapolis (Oct. 1, 2020)—Rasmussen College, a regionally accredited private college, will host its 10th Annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast on Thur., Oct. 8 at 9:00 a.m. Central. This free event will be held virtually this year. All are welcome to register and attend, although space is limited.
The theme for this year’s Women’s Leadership Breakfast event is More than a Seat at the Table, which is more important today than ever before. Brands and organizations are feeling the pressure to diversify their leadership and bring more women—especially women of color—to the table. But true representation and equity require more than a checked box or a filled seat.
Attendees will have the privilege of hearing from guest speaker Austin Channing Brown, an author, speaker and media producer who provides inspired leadership on racial justice in America. Her book, I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness, is a New York Times bestseller and was recently chosen as a Reese’s Book Club pick. She is also the executive producer of the web series The Next Question.
“We are thrilled to welcome and hear from Austin Channing Brown—a dynamic speaker whose passion for racial justice and diversity, equity and inclusion is evident in every comment she makes,” said Dr. MaNesha Stiff, director of diversity, equity and inclusion at Rasmussen College. “Attendees will hear an open, honest and transparent conversation between Austin and myself about trust, accountability and sustainable diversity, equity and inclusion practices. Not only will people learn from Austin on how to recognize injustice in the workforce but also feel inspired to go back to their organizations and influence change.”
The Rasmussen College Women’s Leadership Breakfast began ten years ago as a way to empower women and deepen their leadership presence in all aspects of their lives. Rasmussen is a place where women and men have learned as equals since its founding 120 years ago. In previous years, this event was hosted in the Minneapolis area. This year, Rasmussen is excited to host the event virtually, allowing the College to expand its reach to community partners all over the country.
“Rasmussen College believes in the power of strong communities and knows the health and strength of those communities depends on the critical support and guidance offered by organizations that empower individuals and change lives,” said Dr. Ann Leja, Rasmussen College interim president. “We are so excited to have an inspiring and powerful conversation around brands and organizations diversifying their leadership and giving more women—especially women of color—their seat at the table.”
