Power and Privilege: A Call to Action

We are rarely comfortable talking about difference in our culture. Some believe that with a Black president, a shift towards legalized gay marriage and higher graduation rates for women than men, we have all become equal. Further probing tells us something different. At some point in our lives we all make a choice: do I sit and observe or do I take action?

The Women’s Center is taking action. We seek to move towards a community where inclusion and equity are ingrained in every part of who we are and what we do.  Join us for our last Power and Privilege keynote this year, The Next 50 Years:  Creating a Climate of Equity and Respect with Gary Howard, MEd.
