A story on WBFO-FM about Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul's visit to
UB as part of the Leaders on Leadership speaker series, organized
by the School of Management's Center for Leadership and
Organizational Effectiveness, reports that UB President Satish K.
Tripathi introduced Hochul, noting that she has been an advocate
for women in leadership roles. As part of her presentation, Hochul
indicated it’s time for a new generation of women to seek
leadership positions. She noted a college education is key for
future jobs, explaining how 70 percent of current fifth graders
will be in new jobs that currently don't exist. She said it's time
to help the next generation get a "better education." “It is
still heartbreaking to me that one of our biggest problems is
what’s happening in our public elementary and secondary
schools. We are just not educating kids the way that’s making
them succeed in our cities,” Hochul commented.
