ACE Women's Network - Southern California

President ColeyGreetings ACE Women’s Network of Southern California,

I am delighted to let you know that the ACE Women’s Network of Southern California has moved to California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona) under my presidential sponsorship. I have appointed Dr. Shanthi Srinivas, presidential fellow for leadership excellence and institutional development, as the Chair for the Southern California region.

As you are aware, the ACE Women’s Network of Southern California has had a very successful journey under the leadership of my friend and colleague, Dr. Karen Haynes, who recently retired as president of California State University, San Marcos (CSUSM). We hope to build on the wonderful programming offered by our partners at CSUSM.

For the 2019-20 academic year, we are pleased to offer two “lunch and learn” sessions on September 20, 2019, and October 25, 2019, at Cal Poly Pomona. Our annual conference, also to be held at Cal Poly Pomona, is scheduled for March 27, 2020, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. We will be sending you more details on the various events shortly. In the meantime, please mark your calendars and we hope you will be able to join us!

In our effort to reach a greater audience, we are building our social media presence.
