Hollander Award for Women in Leadership Public Lecture: An Evening with Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz
03/13/2012 - 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
The Hollander Award for Women in Leadership recognizes a woman leader who has made significant contributions to her community and who serves as an exemplary role model for other women. Part of the award is a funded visit to campus allowing the recipient the opportunity to meet with students and help them appreciate and explore the potential contributions they can make to society.
U.S. Representative Allyson Y. Schwartz is currently serving her fourth term representing Pennsylvania's 13th Congressional District. The 13th District includes both the close-knit neighborhoods of Northeast Philadelphia and the first ring suburbs of Montgomery County. Labeled a "rising star" by POLITICO, Schwartz is an increasingly influential figure in Congress, playing a central role in debates on health care, the federal budget, and tax policy. As the sole female member of Pennsylvania's congressional delegation, the Philadelphia Daily News praises her as a "local trailblazer" for women in politics.
