Three Stritch alumnae were recently recognized in the Business Journal’s 2013 Women of Influence Awards.


Jeanette Mitchell, program director of the Stritch Leadership Center; Eve Hall, president and chief executive officer of the African American Chamber of Commerce in Milwaukee; and Earnestine Willis, Kellner Professor in Pediatrics at the Medical College of Wisconsin, were named as women of influence.

Mitchell, who earned a doctorate in leadership from Stritch in 2001, is a former president and member of the Milwaukee Public Schools board and a former program officer for education for the Helen Bader Foundation.


Hall graduated from Stritch in 2009 with a doctorate in leadership. She has provided leadership to a variety of organizations, including the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, Milwaukee Urban League, Tampa Urban League, Boys and Girls Club of Tampa, YWCA of Greater Milwaukee, Family Service of Milwaukee, Milwaukee Public Schools, and the University of Wisconsin—Whitewater. She is featured in the spring 2013 issue of Stritch Magazine, which highlights the pioneering nonprofit work of many alumni.

Willis was a commencement speaker and honorary doctorate of humane letter degree recipient in 2012, 

Each year, the Business Journal honors women who are making a big impact in the community throughout southeastern Wisconsin. The winners were honored in the June 7 issue of the Business Journal and at an awards ceremony at the Delta Center in downtown Milwaukee.
