Call for 2020 Women's Month Celebration program submissions

From: The Women's Center at Virginia Tech

Planning is underway for the annual Women’s Month celebration at Virginia Tech. This coming March 2020, the celebration will feature a calendar of events that may reflect upon the past, celebrate the now, and envision and shape the possibilities ahead.

The Women's Center invites people to submit a program for inclusion in the Women’s Month calendar, which is coordinated by the Women’s Center and distributed widely throughout the campus and surrounding communities. Women’s Month has historically represented the university’s broad commitment to celebrating diverse and inclusive communities. To honor this ongoing commitment, the Women’s Month 2020 calendar will include programs and events aligned with the Virginia Tech Principles of Community.

Women’s Month recognizes, affirms, and showcases the achievements, concerns, and diversity of women. A feminist perspective – one that encourages and advances women of all races, political affiliations, national origins, religions, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and income levels – underlies all our programming. The annual event occurs in March in conjunction with the National Women’s History Month. 

Women’s Month is a nonprofit community project funded by Virginia Tech, area organizations, student groups, local businesses, and citizens’ contributions. It is the combined effort of students, faculty, staff, and administrators at Virginia Tech as well as activists, residents, and civic leaders of the surrounding communities.

The deadline for program submissions is Friday, Feb. 7, 2020 by 11:59 p.m. EST. For more information and questions, contact Edmee Rodriguez-Hasler, interim program coordinator at the Women’s Center, via email at edmee@vt.edu or by phone at 540-231-7806.
