(Oct. 31, 2011) -- With the theme "Women in Leadership," the Storytelling Series Luncheon this semester featured women business leaders and UTSA administrators. Hosted each semester by the UTSA Student Leadership Center, the luncheon brings together students, faculty and staff in a casual atmosphere in which they can share leadership ideas, experiences and challenges. The luncheon included students who attended the LeaderShape institute in May and who suggested the theme for this event.

Besides presentations by the business leaders, discussion topics included double standards for men and women in leadership, women's leadership skills, why women are not represented enough in leadership and how women can support each other in leadership.

Participants included a mix of students and administrators from all levels of leadership. Guests from the San Antonio business community included:

  • Jelynne Burley, executive vice president and chief administrative officer, CPS Energy
  • Nora Silva, senior director, American Heart Association
  • Aaronetta Pierce, president, Premier Artwork Inc.
  • Julie Burgett, vice president of research and development and CEO, Kinetic Concepts Inc.
  • Kathleen Acock, president, Alpha Building Corp.
  • Janice Meyr, president, B&R Supply and Equipment Co.

At the luncheon, UTSA administrators sharing leadership stories including:

  • Gage Paine, vice president for student affairs

  • Susan Colorado, director of learning communities

  • Laura Munroe, director of campus recreation
  • Pesha Mabrie, complex coordinator of housing and residence life
