International Women's Day
Join us for a Google Hangout with Global Activists March 8, 2013 from noon to 1pm in Reeve 307
Annually on March 8, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events, as well as local women’s craft markets, theatrical performances and more.
We are excited to offer an opportunity for students, faculty and staff at Oshkosh to meet activists in other countries via group video chat in Reeve 307, March 8th, at noon (central time).
