Sarah Weddington: "Some Leaders are Born Women!", at Rocky 003 at 4:30 pm on May 2, 2013


In America today, women fill many of the highest posts in both government and business. The successes of these women, from Hillary Clinton to Condoleezza Rice, are shattering the out-of-date stereotyped gender roles that held back female progress in the past. Yet even in today’s progressive society, women still face gender biases and discrimination in their pursuit of success and leadership roles.

RGLP Recap: Developing a Global Consciousness, with Dr. Gama Perucci

Read a student's account of our most recent session in our Global Leadership Program. For more information, about RGLP, click here.

This week’s session marked the kick-off for the Rockefeller Global Leadership Program.  We were fortunate to have Dr. Gama Perruci, Dean of the McDonough Leadership Center at Marietta College, to speak to us about the steps towards developing a global consciousness.

Dr. Gama Perruci first gave us a brief history lesson about the roots of global consciousness. Who knew that there was a traceable history to the concept of global understanding? Well actually, according to Dr. Gama Perruci, global consciousness originated with the Peace of Westphalia (1648) and the political idea of a nation-state.  This global consciousness then grew with changing technologies and political ideologies (such as the industrial revolution, nationalism, and the Internet).
