BROWN BAG LUNCH SERIES
In the spirit of consciousness raising groups, please join the Women's Studies Program for our brown bag lunch series. We invite members of the campus community to bring their lunch and join us on the 2nd Friday of the month starting September 14th. We want to use this time as an opportunity for a “meeting of minds”. As an informal gathering, we intend to address a wide range of women's issues including current topics being discussed inside the classroom and out. The lunches provide opportunities to discuss hot topics, challenges, solutions, and to share ideas and inspirations. Join us for an informal gathering with colleagues and community members who are friends of the Women's Studies Program. The event is FREE. Invite a friend!
