This year, instead of having one day long International Women’s Day celebration, the IWC will be hosting a week-long celebration dedicated to showcasing all of (or at least a lot of) the wonderful women at Northeastern. Additionally, we are proud that this week will be co-sponsored by a number of our IWOC organizations, meaning that for the first time in university history, the women’s organizations on campus will be working together for an interdisciplinary IWD event! The week will feature ten different panels and five workshops each centered around highlighting the work and achievements of Women at Northeastern.
On Monday, March 1st, we will be highlighting the work of our undergraduates by hosting panels featuring Women’s Organization leaders and Female-led Interdisciplinary Research. On Tuesday, our graduates take center stage with panels focused on Female PhD Candidates and “Gradvocates”, or women leading women’s organizations at the graduate level. Wednesday and Thursday will feature our faculty and staff respectively holding panels featuring the female deans, female faculty-led research, faculty advisors of women’s organization, and “staffvocates”, women who lead initiatives and projects for female empowerment in the administration. We close out our week with a day highlighting our wonderful alumni with a panel featuring female founders and a conversation with some of the first women to attend Northeastern.
