About the Series

The June and Herman Loebl Women Business Leader Speaker Series features distinguished women business leaders who have reached the highest levels of achievement and leadership in their professional sphere. They will share their experiences and insights in order to inspire and ignite the Marquette community. This speaker series incorporates a unique blend of presentation and interactive dialogues. In this way, it enables students, faculty, staff, and all of the Marquette University community to interact and engage with renowned women business leaders.

Marquette University’s College of Business Administration has named its Women Business Leaders speaker series in honor of June and Herman Loebl, thanks to a generous gift of $1 million to advance women in leadership within the college. The newly named June and Herman Loebl Women Business Leaders Speaker Series highlights women in business and leadership roles making a difference in the community. Herman Loebl received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Marquette in 1941 and served as chair of the accounting and finance department, director of the MBA program, assistant dean and associate dean during his 38-year career at Marquette. Herman and his wife, June, were deeply committed to making education available to all, in the spirit of the Jesuit mission.
