We are kicking off our 2015 series with:
Renewing Our Courage: Integrating Soul and Role
With Holly Wilkinson and Dani Comey
Free and open to the public. All genders welcome.
We’ll have tea and cookies. Feel free to bring your lunch!
@ The Women’s Center, 34 S. Williams Street (behind Waterman)
About Holly and Dani:
Holly Wilkinson is Assistant Director of the UVM Career Center by day and Courage & Renewal Facilitator by heart. She brings years of experience in facilitation and belief in the power of gathering and sharing in circles of community. Reflection, appreciation and creative expression are the ways Holly moves through the world, both on and off campus.
Dani Comey is the Associate Director of Student Life at UVM and has attended local Courage & Renewal events for several years. She finds this work a powerful tool for reflection and renewal. It offers her both challenge and support to show up in more courageous and integrated ways, at work and at home.
Our annual Welcome Back BBQ will take place on September 10, 2015, 5-7pm here in the WC backyard! There will be lots of yummy BBQ food (with vegan options), music and fun! Bring your friends, all are welcome!
We always hate to say goodbye to summer but, at least, that means Women@Noon time is rolling around once more! Check out our 2015 listing below.
(Women@Noon is a weekly discussion series, held here in The Women’s Center Living Room. Everyone is welcome to attend. Bring your lunch and your friends! We supply tea and cookies.)
The publication of the women’s center zine Herizon is back for the 2015 spring semester! With a different look, same great taste (works for food branding right?) Herizon will be comprised of weekly-biweekly posts right here on the women’s center blog. Here you’ll find topics ranging from the happenings of collegiate life to powerful women making change in the everyday. Make sure to check in to see the latest and greatest work from our Zine writers!
(editor, writer, shower singer extraordinaire :])
P.S leave comments about what you’d like to see in the zine. Lets make this our collective publication!
