Notable Women Present Loeschner Lectures

SESP’s Ray and Nancy Loeschner Lecture on Leadership series, which provides an on-campus forum for visionaries in education and other fields to inspire students, welcomed two speakers last spring. Public intellectual and award-winning poet Eve L. Ewing spoke in April, and San Francisco Federal Reserve president Mary Daly visited in May. For coverage of the talks and details about the women’s life stories, see the SESP website.

“The terms ‘broken home,’ ‘at-risk youth,’ ‘inner city,’ and ‘gang-infested neighborhood’ were all accurate descriptions of my life. But as a human being with subjectivity and agency, that’s not how I saw myself.”


Mary Daly | Leading labor economist, former high school dropout

“Policy reflects the people who make it. If you have only one type of person around the table making the policy, you’re going to miss a lot of the problems that other people would see. And you’re certainly going to miss the unique solutions they’d be able to offer.”
