March 26 Jodi Merriday
March 26 by Campus Activities Board. Jodi Merriday. Co-sponsored by CAB, ResEd and the Damietta Center.
Description: Women’s History Month commemorations positively impact the morale and retention of female students, increase the capacity of students to talk about sex and gender with sensitivity, create a positive cultural climate for diversity and encourage appreciation of difference. Although women have made gains socially, professionally and economically, sexism remains a pervasive barrier to equality. This session provides a historical framework for understanding sexism and explores trending topics to highlight contemporary challenges that women face in regards to equality. Participants will be introduced to multi-racial and multicultural biographies of high-achieving women, five empowerment tools that can be used to challenge sexism and a blueprint for how to become an ally in the quest for women’s equality and social justice.
