Dr. Teresa Sullivan to Speak at September Luncheon

Women United is excited to welcome UVA President Teresa Sullivan as keynote speaker at our 2012 Human Services Grant Award Luncheon on Thursday, September 20 at Farmington Country Club.

At the Luncheon, Women United will award a $30,000 grant to one local non-profit serving women and children in our community. This will mark $227,825 which Women United has awarded to local non-profits since its first Human Services Grant Award in 2006.

Dr. Sullivan is the first female President of the University of Virginia and the eighth person in history to hold the position. She received her doctoral degree from the University of Chicago and served in executive roles at the University of Texas and the University of Michigan before coming to UVA. The author or co-author of six books and more than 50 scholarly articles, Dr. Sullivan’s research focuses on labor force demography, with particular emphasis on economic marginality and consumer debt. Her keynote address on September 20 will focus on Women, Leadership and Community. Women United is honored that she has chosen to share her experience and passion with our members and friends.
