The free program will feature Carmen Twillie Ambar,
president of Oberlin College, and Robyn Minter Smyers,
partner at Thompson Hine. The conversation will be
moderated by Marianne Crosley, president and CEO of
Cleveland Leadership Center.
The program will examine how society continues to work through a
complicated history while redefining what it means to be a woman
in power. It is meant to empower and embolden women looking for
a seat in the board room.
“This is a candid discussion we need to have at Metropolitan
Campus and beyond to advance as a community,” Campus President
Michael Schoop said. “We look forward to this
conversation and more like it.”
The program will be held in the Metropolitan Room of Metro
Campus Center, located along East 30th Street near
Community College Avenue.
The event is part of a series of Metro Campus programs designed
to foster community discussion and connection. It is
co-sponsored by the College’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel
