Please join us for our 3rd Annual Ann Rankin Cowan Lecture on Friday, September 22nd at 3:30 pm at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center (106 Stadium Drive; directions and parking available online).

This year’s speaker is Amy Cuddy, Ph.D., a social psychologist and bestselling author of “Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges.” Dr. Cuddy earned her Ph.D. from 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.

Please join us on Friday, September 22 at 3:30 pm at the Alumni Center for the lecture and reception. This event is free and open to the public, thanks to sponsorship from the Cowan Family Foundation.
