Bay Path University and The Springfield Museums present the On the Move Forum to Advance Women.
Join us for "Women in Leadership: This Is What Change Looks Like - Past, Present, and Future." An intergenerational, cross-cultural, gender-inclusive, history-infused conversation focused on the advancement of women.
Our Keynote Speaker
Dr. Laura Lovett, Associate Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, Department of History and author of With Her Fist Raised: Dorothy Pitman Hughes and the Transformative Power of Black Activism. Her book is the first biography about Dorothy Pitman Hughes, a trailblazing Black feminist activist and a transformative community organizer who co-founded Ms. Magazine with Gloria Steinem in the 1970s. Dr. Lovett is currently co-editing a collection of essays on African American women leaders at the 1977 National Women's Conference -- It’s Our Movement Now-- co-authored by Kelly Giles and Rachel Daniel, and featuring a chapter by On the Move founder Janine Fondon.
