Feedback - 4 “ I found Dr. Merrill-Sands to be an excellent speaker, and her research on Gender Dynamics was an approach to women's career paths that I had not yet heard.  What I liked most about it was that it was a pragmatic approach to advancing women's careers that did not focus on sexism, harassment or diversity issues.  It really dug into the question of how do we give women the tools to advance their careers and to avoid some of the stereotypical roles that women fall into.   The answers applied to women in ALL careers, traditional or otherwise.  It wasn't a re-hash of some of the issues we have seen over the last 10 years.  I was really impressed by the speaker, the subject matter, and the overall program that you and Marya put together.  BRAVO!”
