Farmers Branch Carrollton AAUW member and Brookhaven College faculty, Asmara Saleemi, presented a lecture at Brookhaven’s Professional Development Conference in February on Women in Leadership.

She pointed out that women make up more than half of college graduates and half of the labor force, but they continue to be underrepresented in upper-level positions across job sectors and industries. Her workshop explored why the gender leadership gap exists, its impact, and what can be done to close this difference between women and men. She appreciated having AAUW’s research and PowerPoint presentation materials available to support her lecture.
