Celebrate Women's History Month

The Cultural Centers want to take this opportunity to share some information and invite you to attend this year’s Women’s History Month events. This year’s theme for Women’s History Month is “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.”

We want to highlight our center's offerings this month:

* Dialogue Series on Race, Racism, Identity and Privilege: “Women Advocating Through Politics,“ Tuesday, March 19, 8 p.m., Multicultural Center Lounge Area, first floor DeNaples Center. During March, the centers will be doing weekly posts highlighting current political issues and important contributions in connection to this year's Women’s History Month theme. For our dialogue on March 19, we will engage students in a conversation about women’s history advocating through politics.

* LIfting Those Around Us: Celebrating Women’s Influence on Equity and Inclusion at The University of Scranton, Tuesday, March 26, 6 p.m., Brennan Hall, Rose Room 509. Fifty-one years ago The University of Scranton enrolled its first cohort of women who contributed to paving the way for many who came after them. During this event, we will lift up women who foster equity and inclusion across the university campus and the larger community.

This awards ceremony seeks to recognize all the work women do in our community to push forward the work of those in the past to promote integrity and justice. While much of this work goes unseen, this year, we honor four women who go above and beyond to create an environment where everyone can thrive at The University of Scranton. Our goal is taking what, at times, is invisible work and lifting it up for the whole University of Scranton community to see. Please look on the Royal Sync page for event information and scan the QR code for more information to submit your nomination.

On March 5, a Salary Negotiation Workshop was hosted at the Multicultural Center Lounge Area, first floor DeNaples Center. The Cultural Centers, in collaboration with The Roche Family Center for Career Development and The Office of Human Resources, hosted the interactive workshop designed to empower students to successfully and confidently negotiate salary and benefits.

We look forward to seeing you at some or all our events this month. For more information, contact the Cultural Centers at jkwc@scranton.edu.
