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 create a world that's diverse, equitable and inclusive through conversation and celebration. A day to #InspireInclusion.

We have a some great campus activities planned in honor of International Women's Day and Women's History Month. Author, therapist and emerita professor Dr. Laurie Mintz '82 returns to campus March 7 to deliver the International Women's Day keynote address. And March 8, we'll celebrate by taking a Women of Union photo, and then gathering for a special reception.

All are welcome and encouraged to join us. Come lend your voice to the conversation and celebration.
