Being the First: But Making Sure You are Not the Last

The nation recently welcomed Kamala Harris, our first woman and first woman of color, into the role of Vice President of the United States. The Center for Women & Gender Equity within the Division of Diversity and Belonging invites you to view “Being the First: But Making Sure You are Not the Last” – a brief roundtable discussion with Dr. Lisa Dubose, Dr. Kathleen Kollman, and Dr. Melissa Miller about the meaning and impact of having our first woman as Vice President. We’ll also discuss how to get women more involved in leadership at a local level and the importance of representation. You can view the recording here. On January 27th at 12:30pm, you can join Director of the Center for Women and Gender Equity, Dr. Kacee Ferrell Snyder, for a live discussion follow-up of the panel on Instagram @bgsu.cwge.
