International Women's Day

A graphic that says International Women's Day

International Women's Day (March 8) is a day for recognizing the achievements and contributions of all who identify as women. A day to strengthen ongoing efforts to eradicate discrimination through conversation and celebration. A day to #EmbraceEquity and do our part to raise awareness of gender bias.

We have a full slate of campus activities planned in honor of International Women's Day and Women's History Month. The library has curated a special exhibit for Women's History Month and many departments are participating in the Women's History Month Wall Project to recognize influential women in their fields. We have more programming in the works, so please check back often for updates.

All are welcome and encouraged to join us. Come lend your voice to the conversation about how we can do better to forge equity.
