OSWEGO -- Attorney and presidential adviser Angela Oh will speak on "Women and Leadership in the 21st Century" at Oswego State at 7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 30, in the Hewitt Union ballroom.
In her presentation, she will offer insights into future leadership opportunities for women and minorities.
Oh chose to dedicate her skills as an attorney and spokesperson to public service after she was named special counsel to the Committee on the Los Angles Crisis following the 1992 Los Angeles riots. President Clinton appointed her to serve on the seven-member Advisory Board to his Initiative on Race in 1997.
Oh is a member of many task forces, including the Los Angeles Human Rights Commission, Housing and Urban Development's Community Builder Fellowship Program and the Western Justice Center Foundation.
She is a former president of the Korean Bar Association of Southern California.
She is the author of an essay titled "Beyond Self-Interest" in a book called "True to Ourselves" edited by Nancy Neuman. The book illustrates the expanding influence of women in American public life. Oh's essay discusses the need to move beyond narrow definitions of race and racism.
