Knight Hall, St. Louis, MO 63105

The last few years have been about adapting to change. We’ve learned how to be resilient and nimble in our personal and professional lives, and how to take a step back to affect the world in a more positive way. Let’s take time to influence and inspire at The She Leads Symposium @ WashU with in-depth, relevant insights on how we live, learn, and influence in our new world today.

Join us for a half day of discussions with eminent WashU faculty, administrators, and alumni, joined by a variety of distinguished experts in their fields, surrounding well-being, health, impact, and career. Reception to follow.
