The Weissman Center Brings the World to Mount Holyoke College

The Weissman Center hosts renowned leaders on a variety of topics for invigorating and informed lectures, debate, and dialogue. Join us each semester for public talks and other events that invite us all to think independently and analytically about contemporary and historical issues that have public, national, and global implications. These events provide invaluable opportunities to be in direct and meaningful dialogue with pioneers in politics, business, academia, advocacy, and the arts.

The Power of Resilience

The 2013-2014 series The Power of Resilience will explore change and transformation from the perspective of courage, creativity, and the pursuit of dreams in spite of overwhelming odds. Join us this year as we explore important contributions of extraordinary women who demonstrate 'the power of resilience,' and challenge ourselves to lead a life of purpose, conviction, and indomitable spirit.
