Brigitta Miranda-Freer is the Executive Director of the Montana World Trade Center and the Director of Operations at MonTec. If you think that sounds like two jobs, well, you’re right. So we ask Brigitta how she does it all in this 3rd installment of the S.E.A. Change series. As a prominent leader in the Montana economy, Brigitta is known for getting things done. We talk about her experience leading two important organizations in the Montana economy and her perspective on gender equity in the workplace and on campus
In this special episode we introduce S.E.A. Change, a University of Montana initiative to address the challenges and embrace the opportunities facing our society as we seek equity for all women. March 2020 will mark the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment. We chat with Chelsea and Seth Bodnar about the significance of this centennial and what to expect from S.E.A Change. We then pivot to a conversation with UM Regents Professor of History Anya Jabour and historian and Montana public radio legend, Beth Judy, about the history of women’s suffrage here in Montana and beyond.
