women's initiative

Gender equality is a collective cause and responsibility. Society has evolved immensely since the days when gender roles reflected the authentic imbalance between men and women, but present attitudes and conditions still show that much work has yet to be done. This is a highly collaborative leadership initiative involving both academic and student affairs staff. Participants will be introduced to the multiple factors that impact the women’s movement still today such as cultural values, socialization, and the power of the media as it pertains to representation of the female image to name just a few. Leadership development skills will be taught as a means to motivate taking a larger role in the awareness education efforts. Participants will assist in the development of a comprehensive Women’s History Week programming initiative scheduled to take place in March.
