PHENOMENAL WOMEN'S CONFERENCE Each year, the Siegel Institue hosts a daylong conference welcoming women from the workplace and community, as well as student participants, giving them the opportunity to learn about ethical leadership issues, women's roles as leaders, and the challenges women face, both locally and around the globe. The conference draws women of all ages and backgrounds from metro Atlanta and northwest Georgia. The theme for the 14th Annual Phenomenal Women's Conference is 'Believe, Begin, Become." Please join us on March 21, 2014, for this stellar event.
SIEGEL INSTITUTE/ALLIANCE THEATRE 2013-2014 PARTNERSHIP The Siegel Institute has been invited by the nationally acclaimed Alliance Theatre to form a partnership involving a series of five plays focusing on women, leadership, ethics, politics, sports, and social justice. We are proud to accept this invitation and offer the campus community and others the opportunity to join us in this unique learning forum. The Siegel Institute will provide support to help facilitate the incorporation of these plays into curriculum, community engagement, professional development, and/or a night of fun with KSU friends! We will host one event per play at the Alliance Theatre. These events will involve the directors, playwrights, KSU faculty, KSU alumni, and/or actors.

LUNCH/DINNER AND A BOOK OR MOVIE The Siegel Institute created the "Lunch and a Book or Movie " series of events to bring faculty and students together from the different disciplines on campus to discuss ethics and leadership in a collaborative fashion, informally over lunch or dinner. The Siegel Institute invites faculty - along with a student guest - to participate. The first six faculty respondents and their selected students then become the participants for each event. The Institute provides the faculty member and the student with a complimentary DVD of the movie or copy of the book in advance, and provides a lunch or dinner for the entire group on the meeting date. This series began with three events in 2008 and, based on positive feedback from faculty and students, the Institute more than doubled the number of events to seven in 2011-2012.
