Bentley launches center for women and business
Bentley University said it is launching the Center for Women and Business to "advance shared leadership among women and men in the business world and develop women business leaders."
The center's director is Betsy Myers, a former senior adviser to Barack Obama's Presidential Campaign and a former executive director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Waltham-based Bentley said in a press release.
In a statement, Bentley University president Gloria C. Larson said: "We have made significant progress over the past several decades, but now more than ever, we must work even harder to create the same kinds of opportunities in the corporate world for both men and women. Through the center, Bentley will engage with the business community to address the barriers preventing many women from succeeding in business."
