March is Women’s History Month, and DWN is celebrating in big ways!
Women of Culture Series
Along with our DePaul co-sponsors, DWN is proud to present a free, two-part series of events featuring noted women scholars discussing their research on gender, race and education in a forum setting.
- March 6: “Arab Women Between Perceptions and Reality—Who Is She?” featuring DePaul’s Dr. Nesreen Akhtarkhavari, Director of the Arabic Studies Program, and Dr. Aminah McCloud, Director of the Islamic World Studies Program. Event: 4-5:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Park Campus Student Center, Room 120A. Register now for the event. (Registration is open until March 4.)
- March 13: “Where and When I Enter: Intersectionality, African-American Women and Higher Education” featuring Dr. Venus Evans-Winters, Associate Professor of Education at Illinois State University. Event: 4-5:30 p.m. on the Loop Campus in the DePaul Club Room, 11th floor of the DePaul Center. Register now for the event. (Registration is open until March 10.)
We’ve invited DWN team members and guests to share their feelings throughout March on topics that hit close to home: Why do women’s networks matter? How do women balance the need for independence against wanting to connect with a community? Check back often to read the latest posts and be reminded of all of the ways that #DePaulWomenRock (our favorite social media hashtag and rallying cry)!
We’re gearing up for the 2014-15 service year and preparing to issue a call for DePaul women to join us. Stay tuned to this blog and our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) for updates on how to apply.
We’re excited for everything this month will bring. What are you looking forward to during Women’s History Month?
