Castleton University will celebrate Women's History Month in March with a full schedule of events. This year's national theme is "Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence" and the university is hosting a series of lectures, films, discussions, panels, and more to recognize the achievements of women near and far.
Dr. Oriana Gatta, artist and educator, will give a presentation about "The Art of Transition: A Generative Reflection" at 4:30 p.m. on March 7.
The highly-anticipated "Every Woman Has A Story" will feature a personal, 15-minute story by a Castleton student, staff, or faculty member every Wednesday throughout March at noon. These presentations are held in the Alumni Room at Huden Dining Hall. Lunch is $4 per person.
A panel of Castleton alumni turned entrepreneurs, including Olivia Duane Adams of Alteryx, Inc., Jennifer Usher of Make It Sew, and Christie Garofano of Body Essentials Personal Training and Wellness and the Women Business Owners Network Rutland chapter, will discuss their personal experiences owning and operating their own businesses. The panel discussion will take place on Thursday, March 14 at 12:30 p.m. in the Campus Center.
