Educated = Empowered

100 Years of Emory Women as Change-Makers

                                       

Wednesday, April 5, 2017

6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Robert W. Woodruff  Library | Emory University | 540 Asbury Circle Atlanta 30322

Honored guest President Claire Sterk will offer opening remarks before this panel discussion with a notable group of Emory leaders that will focus on the many ways access to higher education has empowered women, why women's history and voices matter, and what the future of Emory holds with the first female president at the helm. 

As we recognize 100 years of women at Emory and 25 years since the launch of the Center for Women, Emory Libraries will showcase these milestones through an exhibition in the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library, "100 Years of Women at Emory: Progress Marked by Many Milestones," curated by University Archivist John Bence, who will offer a tour for attendees.


6:30 - 7:30 pm: Program in the Jones Room, 3rd Floor, Woodruff Library
