Nancy Noyer, director of the UI Pre-Vocational Training Program, will be joined by Sgt. Mary Jo Lessmeier, a detective with the UI department of public safety, and Stephanie Miller-Lamb, stage manager for Hancher Auditorium.

They will talk with host Deone Pedersen about their jobs and the concerns and issues they face as women working in non-traditional fields. Pedersen chairs the University Council on the Status of Women.
