(WEST CHESTER, PA) – Lincoln University President Brenda A. Allen will address the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce’s Women’s Roundtable on January 26 at 6 p.m.
President Allen will share how she leads through a crisis and the ability to persist. Attendees will have time to engage with each other in several breakout sessions.
As Lincoln University’s 14th president, Allen has been aggressively implementing a strategic plan designed to ensure Lincoln’s place among great liberal arts institutions.

The GWCC Women’s Roundtable Series, sponsored by Miles Financial Management, Inc., connects attendees with extraordinary female speakers from the Greater West Chester regions and presents unique networking for professional women.
“Dr. Allen is an inspiring woman that has faced man challenges in her life head-on, and I, as well as many other, am eager to learn from her experiences,” said Melissa Hawes, Founder of Miles Financial Management, Inc. “We are happy to sponsor such a great and well-rounded series as the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce’s Women’s Roundtable.”
The Women’s Roundtable event is open to members and non-members; registration is required. Registration is $10 for Greater West Chester Chamber of Commence members and $20 for non-member. Those who want to attend but can’t afford to may select the complimentary ticket option.
