A Changing World: Presentation by Virginia Hinshaw

January 28, 12:30pm - 2:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Shidler College of Business Room E203 Add to Calendar

The Women's Studies Program is honored to have UH Mānoa Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw as the first speaker for the Spring 2011 Women's Studies Colloquium Series.

Presentation title: "My Journey in a Changing World."

Chancellor Hinshaw serves as the chief executive officer responsible for providing both academic and administrative leadership to the flagship campus within the statewide UH system. She is a renowned scientist with expertise in microbiology, whose work over the past 25 years has contributed to the understanding of the influenza virus and new approaches to vaccines. But the road to accomplishment has had its share of bumps and detours. 

For example, she once boycotted an international scientific meeting—and publicly informed its organizers and her colleagues that she was doing so—because no woman had been invited to participate as a speaker or panelist, even though many qualified women were available.  

Chancellor Hinshaw will affirm that, while great progress has been made toward equality, women continue to face challenges on their own journeys in a changing world. Please come join her in this informal talk-story session.
