The College of Saint Rose has been selected to host the 2020 International Leadership Association (ILA) Women and Leadership Conference. The 5th annual conference, which will be held June 7 through 10 in 2020, will bring women and men from across the country and around the world to Saint Rose in the 100th year of women’s suffrage in the United States. It will also occur as the College celebrates its own centennial.
Lisa Haley Thomson, chief of staff in the President’s Office at Saint Rose, and Joanne Barnes, a past chair of the ILA Women and Leadership Affinity Group and dean of the graduate school and professor of leadership studies at Indiana Wesleyan University, will serve as co-chairs of the conference.
“I am thrilled that Saint Rose will be hosting the 2020 ILA Women and Leadership Conference,” said President Carolyn J. Stefanco, who also serves on the ILA board of directors and chairs the association’s fundraising committee. “It is especially exciting that ILA members and partners from around the globe will have the opportunity to network, grow, and learn from one another in our new Women’s Leadership Institute, which opens this fall and will serve as one of the venues at the conference.”
