Call for program submissions for Women's Month 2019

From: Women's Center

Planning is underway for the annual Women’s Month celebration at Virginia Tech. This year’s theme is “Celebrating Milestones: Building on the power of firsts,” which is inspired by the hard won successes of those who have taken risks to advance women across generations.

In March, we will feature a calendar of events that reflects upon the past, celebrates the present, and envisions and shapes the possibilities ahead.

We invite you 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 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. Women’s Month is an annual event occurring in March, National Women’s History Month.

Women’s Month is a non-profit community project funded by the university, 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. 8, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. EST.  Please share any questions with Leslie Mathews, Interim Program Coordinator at the Women’s Center, via email at lesliem2@vt.edu or by phone at 540-231-7806.
