The Joy Cole Corning Distinguished Leadership Lecture Series was established at the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) by Corning, who, a distinguished leader herself, served in many roles including Lieutenant Governor of Iowa from 1991 to 1999. The 19th Amendment Centennial Commemoration Committee aims to partner with the UNI Foundation to bring a prominent national speaker, someone who has stood for women's rights, to the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center at UNI in the Fall of 2020. This lecture will serve as a tribute to Joy Cole Corning and her remarkable service to the Cedar Valley and the state of Iowa.
Target Audience: This lecture will serve as a culminating event of the commemorative year and will be open to all in the Cedar Valley and the State of Iowa.
Lead Organizer(s): Sasha Wohlpart and Doris Kelley, Chair - 19th Amendment Centennial Commemoration Committee
