Media Advisory: Business Leader and Author Susan Bulkeley Butler to Speak at Eller College of Management
Undergraduate and MBA women in business organizations host free community talk on women and leadership Monday, October 4 at 5:00 p.m.
TUCSON, Ariz. – September 28, 2010 – According to a Government Accountability Office report released today, women held 40 percent of managerial jobs in 2007, up just one percent from 2000. In those jobs, women earned 81 cents for every dollar men made.
Susan Bulkeley Butler aims to change that. The CEO of the Susan Bulkeley Butler Institute for the Development of Women Leaders has a new book out, Women Count: A Guide to Changing the World.
Butler will participate in an informal community discussion led by Eller College dean Paul Portney and leaders from the Professional Women in Business Association and the National Association of Women MBAs on Monday, October 4, 2010, from 5:00-6:00 p.m. at McClelland Hall’s Estes Atrium (1130 East Helen Street, Tucson). The talk will be followed by a reception and meet and greet with Butler.
Butler, also the author of Become the CEO of You, Inc.: A Pioneering Executive Shares Her Secrets for Career Success, shaped her career at Accenture, the world’s leading management consulting, technology services, and outsourcing organization. She joined Arthur Andersen & Co. as its first professional female employee in 1965, and 14 years later, was named the first female partner of its consulting organization, Andersen Consulting, now known as Accenture. Before her retirement in 2002, Susan was the Managing Partner for Accenture’s Office of the CEO for Chairman & CEO Joe W. Forehand. Susan served on Accenture’s Executive Committee, the company’s principal advisory and strategy-setting committee, and as President of the Accenture Foundation.
