Former U.S. Senator and past candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination Carol Moseley Braun will speak on the topic of women in leadership Monday, Feb. 25 at UW-Green Bay.
Moseley Braun’s address, “One person, just like you,” is slated to begin at 5 p.m. in the Phoenix Room of the University Union on campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive. There will be a question-and-answer session at approximately 6:15, and the talk will wrap up by 7 p.m. The event, part of UW-Green Bay’s Black History Month and Women’s History Month celebrations, is free and open to the public.
Moseley Braun was elected to the Senate in 1992, the first African-American woman ever to serve in the nation’s upper chamber. She campaigned for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2003, and also has served as Illinois State Representative, United States Attorney and Ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa.
In addition to her public address, Moseley Braun’s time at UW-Green Bay will include meeting with a Multicultural Counseling class. More information about Women’s History Month at UW-Green Bay is available online: http://news.uwgb.edu/log-news/releases/02/18/womens-history-month-events-1326/.
