The Power of Resilience: Women’s Leadership in the 21st Century


The Phoebe S. Leboy Lecture is awarded annually to an outstanding scholar who catalyzes opportunities for women in academia; the lectureship was created in 2013 by the Penn Forum for Women Faculty.


A ground-breaking executive throughout her career, Dr. Rodin was the first woman named to lead an Ivy League Institution and was the first woman to serve as The Rockefeller Foundation’s president. At Penn, Dr. Rodin presided over an unprecedented decade of growth and progress that transformed the institution, its campus, and the community, taking the university from sixteenth to fourth in U.S. News and World Report national rankings.

This is a free event hosted by the Penn Forum for Women Faculty. The lecture begins at 3:00 PM with reception to follow.
