Lead Like a Woman Circle
November 1, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
You’re invited to join the Lead Like a Woman Circle to explore the many facets of female leadership.
Our ‘lunch and learn’ style Circle meets virtually on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 12 PM.
We’ll delve into what female leadership looks like, hear from women in power about what female leaders need to thrive, and how we can be allies. We will discuss how to lead like a woman, role models to learn from, where to get started, and why female leaders are more important now than ever.
This month, our guest speaker is S.C. State Senator Mia McLeod.
Join us to help define what it means to Lead Like a Woman!
About Senator McLeod
A trailblazing leader, Mia S. McLeod was the first woman to represent House District 79 and Senate District 22 and the first black woman ever to run for Governor of South Carolina.
Senator McLeod is known for her bipartisan work in and through state government. McLeod served S.C. State Representative David Beasley (later Republican Governor) as a page and worked for the SC Chamber of Commerce before earning her Juris Doctorate at the USC School of Law. Senator McLeod launched a statewide Violence Against Women initiative for Republican SC Attorney General Charlie Condon and was later appointed by Democratic Governor Jim Hodges to direct the State Office of Victim Assistance (SOVA).
A proud mother of two young adult sons, she represents Senate District 22 (Richland County) and serves on Senate Judiciary, Medical Affairs, Rules, Corrections & Penology and Family & Veteran’s Services Committees.
