Stories of WE (Workplace Equity) @ Phyllis J. Washington Education Center ALI Auditorium

The UM campus and broader community is invited to an event focused on building advocates for workplace equity. Our goal is to share stories about issues that women confront in the workplace and develop strategies for creating a more inclusive organizational culture. We will have panel presentations, a keynote speaker and breakout discussions. Child care and refreshments will be provided.

This event is organized by the Women’s Leadership Initiative (sponsored by Clearwater Credit Union) in conjunction with UM’s S.E.A. Change Initiative. More details and a campuswide invitation will be sent out in mid-January. Registration is required; RSVPs can be sent to nicky.phear@umontana.edu, WLI Coordinator.
