The Women's League will host the fifth in its "power breakfast" series of informal get-togethers exploring the role of women in the academy on March 24, featuring guest speaker Kathryn Willmore, vice president and secretary of the Corporation.
The event will take place from 8-9:30am in Rm 10-342. (Breakfasts are scheduled early enough on a weekday to encourage women with work responsibilities at the Institute to participate, and start promptly at 8am.) Seating is limited; tickets for $10 are available on a first-come, first-served basis from Sis de Bordenave, administrative coordinator in the Women's League office, Rm 10-342.
Ms. Willmore is responsible for coordinating activities and communication with respect to major issues among the senior leadership of the faculty, administration, staff and trustees of the Institute, as well as advising MIT's president, senior officers and others on matters of policy and public communication. She has general oversight of the Communications Office, Conference Services, Events and Information Center, News Office and Publishing Services Bureau.
One of the Institute's four corporate officers, Ms. Willmore is also responsible for administering the operations of the Corporation, including membership, quarterly meetings, standing committees and the 27 visiting committees that conduct biennial reviews of the Institute's academic and research programs. She also serves as secretary of the Corporation's Executive Committee.
