Simmons School of Management Screening

The Simmons School of Management Alumna Association and Center for Gender in Organizations (the research arm of SOM) just hosted a screening of Who Does She Think She Is? as part of their Fall Speaker Series.  The event took place at the Simmons School of Management in Boston on November 16, 2010.

SOMAA and Current Simmons Students enjoyed the film!

The SOMAA hosts various events throughout the year to provide continuous learning opportunities for their alumnae.  Along with inviting their members, they also thought that current students would be interested in watching our film.   The audience for this film (about 40 people) was a wonderful mix of women of all different ages and backgrounds.

Prof. Patricia Deyton and Pamela Tanner Boll

Our director, Pamela Tanner Boll, was asked to be part of a conversation after the screening about the status of work/life balance in women’s lives today.  The discussion was moderated by Professor Patricia Deyton who is the Director of the Center for Gender and Organizations.  The questions asked during this Q&A were interesting and thought provoking and Professor Deyton did a great job of keeping the conversation focused on the work/life balance.  Audience members were asked to fill out a questionnaire after the event and we were told that we received excellent reviews!

Discussion about Work/Life Balance

Special thanks go out to Elizabeth Duncan McLean, Continuous Learning Chair for the SOMAA, and Lisa Craig, a Student Representative from the Evening Program on the Board of the SOMAA and a friend from Winchester, for making this event a success!
