Women of Distinction

Alice Babia, Maribel Vasquez & Brigette Cremente

"Leadership is about capacity - the capacity of leaders to listen and observe, the use their expertise as a starting point to encourage dialogue between all levels of decision-making, to establish processes and transparency in decision-making, to articulate their own values and visions clearly but not impose them. Leadership is about setting and not just reacting to agendas, identifying problems, and initiating change that makes for substantial improvement rather than managing change."

~Dr. Ann Marie E. McSwain, Associate Professor, Lincoln University~


Dr. Marlene Eid, Psychology Professor
