DULUTH, MN-- The College of St. Scholastica alongside Lake Superior College, Fond du Lac Tribal, and Community College, and UW-Superior hosted a roundtable discussion Wednesday.
Leaders from all those schools celebrated women in higher education and talked about how to draw more women to the field.
They also wanted to help people see that there is more to women's identities beyond just their gender.
"When do we tap women on the shoulder and encourage them to go into positions, get their master's degree and doctor degrees, apply for positions to encourage them to advance their careers and to help them understand the barriers they're facing," said CSS President, Dr. Barbara McDonald.
According to a Lake Superior College spokesperson, 30 percent of college and university presidents nationwide identify as female.
And four out of six colleges in the Twin Ports have women in leadership positions.
