Our Women Leaders of the Present

Through transformative experiences at Moravian College, our alumnae are extraordinarily accomplished. We are excited to bring two of these remarkable alumnae, Dr. Mary Kate Andris, Ed.D. ’96, former President and CEO of YWCA South Hampton Roads, and Deborah O. McKinnon, J.D. ’73, Executive Director of the American Council of Trust and Estate Council (ACTEC) to lead the evening’s conversation. They will discuss how their unique Moravian experience led them to be impactful leaders within their career fields, their community, and the Moravian community.


Thursday, April 8
7:00 p.m. - 7:45 p.m. (EST)
Our Women of Leaders of the Future 

Moravian College’s future is as bright as ever. Our students are already leaders as they hone their personal, academic, and professional capabilities. Victoria Vargas ’21, senior Biology major and recent Undergraduate Research Club President, and Gabrielle Stanley ’21, senior English and Writing Studies major who participated in the Student Opportunities for Academic Research (SOAR) Honors program, will share their Moravian experiences and how they will lead in the 21st Century.
