On June 11, six notable Wisconsin women will share their struggles and journeys along their personal paths to power and influence at “Women and Power: A Right to be Heard,” at 6:30 p.m. in the Alumnae Dining Room.

Speakers include:

  • Elizabeth Brenner, former publisher of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
  • Mary Burke, a former executive at Trek and a 2014 candidate for governor
