Attend Villanova University’s Women in Public Service Leadership Webinar

While women are well represented in the public sector, they are underrepresented in leadership roles. Women occupy less than 30% of “senior official” positions in the public sector, while representing around 50% of clerical positions*.

Join Dr. Christine Palus, Dean of the College of Professional Studies and Professor of Public Administration at Villanova University, as she discusses the topic of women in public service leadership.

Session Time:


Tuesday, March 10th at Noon ET

The webinar will cover topics such as:
  • Female representation in public administration leadership roles
  • How to overcome obstacles that women leaders often face
  • Developing more inclusive public service organizations


Dr. Christine Palus is a Professor in the Department of Public Administration at Villanova University and currently serves as the Dean of the College of Professional Studies at Villanova University.

She conducts research on public administration, management, and urban politics.
