The Brenau University Women’s College cordially invites the community to Gainesville historic campus for an afternoon of information and inspiration at the fourth annual Women’s Leadership Colloquium. Students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the university will gather for conversations about the unique potential and challenges of women’s leadership.
