Rowland School of Business’ Women In Industry Initiative Kicks Off Virtual Speaker Series with UPMC’s Marianna Stoneburner Monday, September 14, 2020
The Women In Industry initiative, a program of the Rowland School of Business at Point Park University, is kicking off its WIN Wednesdays virtual speaker series September 16 with special guest Marianna Stoneburner from UPMC discussing How Do You Lead During a Global Pandemic? The event is free and open to the public.
Stoneburner is chief of nursing and vice president of patient care at UPMC Horizon and UPMC Jameson. She will share her experiences with pandemic leadership, including crisis planning and management, transparency, communication and flexibility. She will take questions from the virtual audience.
“Over the last 24 years, Marianna has held progressive leadership roles with UPMC,” said Sandra Mervosh, M.S., SHRM-SCP, SPHR, program director of WIN and director of Rowland’s human resources management program. “She is representative of everything the Women In Industry initiative is about.”
Educating and empowering women is an essential element of the Rowland School of Business and the WIN initiative to accelerate the success of women-identified students and professionals.
“By leveraging student and community resources, we strive to engage leaders, effect conversation and encourage allyship through a variety of elevating experiences,” Mervosh said.
WIN has invited a number of professional women to speak on campus, and this virtual series is meant to continue that experience during a global pandemic that limits in-person events.
September 16, 1:30 - 2:30 p.m.
