March is Women's History Month

| By: Britten, Casey

 

This March, we are honoring Women’s History Month by recognizing the inspiring women of the Fox Valley Technical College community. Throughout the month, we will be shining a light on some of our alumnae who are leading the way for other women in our social media channels.

In addition, we are hosting the following events:

Tuesday, March 8: International Women’s Day
Appleton Campus Commons
9 a.m.-2 p.m.
Complete a card or note of empowerment, inspiration, or welcome for a female refugee student at FVTC and enjoy a bag of fresh popcorn! FVTC Diversity and Inclusion Services will provide the greeting cards and writing utensils.  If you’re not about to make it on Tuesday, we will have cards to complete in the Diversity and Inclusion Services office, room E120, throughout the month of March. All cards will be sent out at the end of the month.
Hosted by FVTC Diversity & Inclusion Services

All Month: “I Am Not Invisible” Display
Appleton Campus Library
The I Am Not Invisible (IANI) awareness campaign began as a program featuring 20 photographs of Oregon women who were military veterans. Now a nationwide program, the IANI campaign strives to increase awareness and generate dialogue about the role of women veterans. The Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs through the Wisconsin Veterans Museum created their IANI exhibit to highlight the many faces of a diverse, experienced and important segment of the veteran community and increase awareness about these veterans.
