Our annual luncheon was an opportunity to give back to our community and to especially remember those affected by the April 15th tornado. Profits from the event will go toward helping schools affected by the tornado.
Julie Peoples was an inspiring speaker, challenging us to recognize the change agent within us to make a difference and to humbly learn. She reminded us to think of a world where those who are different are treated with respect and fairness, and to imagine that world where we are one of those who are different.
Dr. Kimberly Hewitt introduced us to the young women who will represent our AAUW Greensboro Branch at the National Conference of College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL). Through the generosity of donors, the winners receive full scholarship to attend the May 30 to June 2 conference in College Park, Maryland. They also receive a stipend to help defray travel expenses. Upon returning to campus in the fall, these students will undertake projects that will promote equity and opportunity for women.
