Spotlight on Women Leaders

This program was created by the Provost’s Advisory Committee on Women’s Concerns (PACWC) to celebrate, share, and inspire women’s leadership across the University of Pittsburgh. Our goal is to honor women mentors, role models, and leaders who have dedicated themselves to the advancement of the Pitt community through personal and professional effort. These are women of impact who have modeled leadership through their actions, who have made significant contributions to Pitt programs and initiatives, and who have made a difference to the Pitt community. By celebrating a diverse and inclusive group of University of Pittsburgh women leaders – faculty, staff, and students – we hope to encourage other women to aspire to leadership roles.

View the videos below to hear women leaders discuss leadership and what it means to each of them. Check back often for additional videos.
