Pat Mitchell is the President and CEO of The Paley Center for Media (formerly Museum of Television and Radio), Co-Producer of the first TEDWomen Conference, Producer for TEDx Women, Vice Chair of the Sundance Institute and former President and CEO of Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). She was most recently featured in Fast Company’s Special Report, The League of Extraordinary Women, and Huffington Post named Pat one of the most Powerful Women Over 50. Pat was also recently named one of the 21 Leaders For The 21st Century and Newsweek‘s 150 Women Who Shake the World. Her vision on women in the world, as stated below, is a small insight into the thought-provoking shift of consciousness The Sophia Institute is striving toward.

Pat describes her thoughts for the evening lecture as follows, "As the decades of my own advocacy on behalf of women pile up, I'm ever more convinced that women lead differently if given the chance to express our genuine styles, passions, and priorities. Whether it's the head of a multinational bank, weighing what kinds of financial products to offer, at what price points, with what kind of marketing materials, or the Speaker of the House keeping order in one of the least civil places left in America, or whether you are organizing the neighborhood for a community or school project, women, when fully engaging their whole selves and their full set of experiences as wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, citizens are inclined to do it differently. And it’s that difference that can make all the difference in terms of better business, more sustainable communities, and more personally fulfilling lives, too. There are some new rules or principles for leading as a woman that reflect new values and I will share the ones I’ve learned along the way as an executive, a mother, grandmother, mentor, friend, and woman in the world."

We are blessed to have Pat joining us January 31st at 6 pm at the Dock Street Theatre, to host a program about Women and Leadership. Reception to follow. Please join us for this powerful and inspiring evening.
