International Women’s Day Seminar and Panel Discussion

Mar 8, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A panel discussion to better understand the seminal issue of our time, Inequality. Specifically how structural inequality disproportionately affects women. Additionally, we will discuss ways to take action as a community, and at the national level.

We are hosting an event at the Evans School to celebrate International Women’s Day. Systematic inequality, affects us on a global scale. Those who live in poverty, and women suffer the most from global inequality. This International Women’s day we aim to educate the public about the current status of women in the US and globally, and empower women to take action to end this injustice and inequality. To do so, a group of 5 women leaders will host a discussion on gender inequality at a national and international scale on Tuesday March 8th.

Some of our confirmed panelists include:
Zoë True (PATH and Evans School Alum)
-Public Policy and global health
Caitlin O’Brien-Carelli
-Public Health Leader at the MPH school at UW
Ellen Southard (RESULTS WA)
-Advocacy – community leadership
Rachel Chapman (UW Professor)
Deana Rader (Director of Women’s Programs at Highline College)
-Low income women’s issues in South KIng County

The event will be moderated by Jessica Collins(UW Student) and Panhellenic president Jenna Traurig! We want to welcome UW students and community members alike!

Food and drinks will be provided!
