Women's History Month
The Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in partnership with Parkside’s Bold Leaders: Women Leaders Professional Development cohort invite you to join us as we recognize Women’s History Month.
Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987.
This year’s theme: Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.
Join us as we support student groups and other campus partners by participating in the various events that have been planned.
To kick off Women’s History Month, write a thank-you note to the women in your life!
Grab the stationery and a glitter gel pen (or send an email), and harness the power of gratitude. Whether it’s your mom, your spouse, your sister, your best friend, or a teacher who inspired you years ago, write a heartfelt thank-you to a woman who has made a difference in your life.
