In observance of Women’s History Month, Rochelle Henderson will be the featured speaker at the Distinguished Speaker Series on March 11 at the University of Missouri–St. Louis Millennium Student Center.

Henderson is a UMSL alumna, PhD political science 2010, and senior director of Research and Analytics at Express Scripts. The title of her talk is “Ready for the rapids? Navigating the fluid world of business.” The program will be from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and will be followed by a reception from 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

This is the 24th year of the Distinguished Speaker Series, which brings a business leader of notable achievement to campus to talk about a timely issue. The program is open and free to the public, and while it is aimed at students, all are welcomed. The UMSL Executive Leadership Consortium coordinates the program.

Malaika Horne, director of ELC said, “As our business and organizational worlds become increasingly complex, it’s incumbent on us to share as much practical information and knowledge as possible to ensure our students’ professional success.

“We’re particularly delighted to have Dr. Henderson as she is a UMSL graduate,” she added.

At Express Scripts, Henderson supervises a team of PhD health policy researchers and works with schools of pharmacy and medical schools in the greater St. Louis area. She serves on a number of health-related research teams with institutions across the St. Louis region, including Washington University School of Medicine with Barnes Hospital, the Veteran’s Administration Regional Hospital and the School of Nursing at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

Sponsors include E. Desmond Lee Professor in Developing Women and Entrepreneurs in International Business–UMSL College of Business Administration, UMSL Alumni Relations, UMSL Executive Leadership Consortium and UMSL Gender Studies.

ELC’s purpose is to prepare students to become effective leaders to meet current and future demands in response to regional, state, national and international needs.
