It's 1950 and you're a woman running a household. What’s your typical day? You get up early, make lunch for your husband and kids, rush him off to work and the little ones to school, run the vacuum, do some laundry, pick the kids up from school and shuttle them to baseball or ballet, make dinner, put the kids to bed - and then do it all again tomorrow. Flash forward to 2012 - women are very much a part of the working world, with jobs ranging from architects to receptionists to news anchors to CEO's. The woman at the top – who is she and how does she operate at a high level of management? In this installment of the Drucker Business Forum series, we talk with two women at the height of their fields in business and education about the challenges and opportunities they see for females in the workforce. Join Patricia Hausknost, senior vice president at City National Bank and chair of the United Way Women Leaders Cabinet, and Jenny Darroch, associate professor of marketing and MBA Academic Director at the Drucker School of Management, as they exchange ideas and experiences gained through working their way up in the organizational and corporate worlds.

This program is a Drucker Business Forum co-presented by SCPR and the Drucker School of Management at Claremont Graduate University.


Jenny Darroch, Associate Professor of Marketing and MBA Academic Director, the Drucker School of Management; Her first book, Marketing Through Turbulent Times, was published in 2009.

Patricia D. Hausknost, Senior Vice President and Manager, Financial Institutions, City National Bank; Chair, United Way Women Leadership Cabinet
