People in today’s society focus on living a fast-paced life, and women in particular seem to fall in line with all that it has to offer — multitasking, lists and busyness. Dr. Ann Burnett, professor and director of women and gender studies at NDSU, will talk about her research into the fast pace of life, what it means for women leaders and whether or not “keeping up” is such a good idea.
