Pritzker Fellow Kate Brown on "Running & Governing as a Woman: Yes, It Is Different"


(Current UChicago Students Only)


Tuesday, October 17

12:30-1:45 PM

With one or more other women leaders, a conversation about the unique challenges and advantages of running as women and governing as such. Are women Governors treated differently by the media and by voters? Is it harder to raise money as a candidate? What makes women effective in these executive positions? Do women governors have different relationships with their legislatures? Does having a strong presence of women in leadership in a particular state make a difference? How would having more women in these executive posts impact policy and political change? Let me walk you through my time in a state that was never renowned for women leaders - to say nothing of someone bisexual - and how I worked through it.

Special Guests (via Zoom): Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham (New Mexico) & Governor Janet Mills (Maine)
