The 3rd Annual Ann Rankin Cowan Lecture, made possible and sponsored by Ann Rankin Cowan and the Cowan Family Foundation, features Amy Cuddy, Ph.D., a social psychologist and bestselling author of “Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges.” She earned her Ph.D. at Princeton University and has served on the faculties of Harvard Business School and Northwestern University. Dr. Cuddy’s 2012 TED Talk, “Your Body Language May Shape Who You Are,” has been named by the Guardian as one of the 20 online talks that could change your life, has been viewed more than 42 million times, and is the second-most-viewed TED Talk. Focusing on the power of nonverbal behavior, prejudice and stereotyping, the delicate balance of trustworthiness and strength, and the ways in which people can affect their own thoughts, feelings, performance, and psychological and physical-being, she writes and speaks about how we can become more present, influential, compassionate, and satisfied in our professional and personal lives.

Join us Friday, September 22 at 3:30 pm in George Watts Hill Alumni Center, 106 Stadium Drive (parking and directions available online), to hear her presentation, “Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges.”
