Women in Leadership: A discussion with Alums Traci Park A&S '97

Women in Leadership

Sponsored by Women of Hopkins LA

Women have challenged the sociocultural barriers to their engagement outside the domestic domain throughout history and are making significant strides in public leadership roles today. To fully understand the female experience in a male dominated arena, and to support achievements in gender equality, we are highlighting lived experiences of women in current leadership positions. Please join us in our discussion with Traci Park A&S '97, an accomplished lawyer and currently running for LA City Council District 11, for a peek into her journey, establishing who she is today.
