A Day to Celebrate - International Women's Day, March 8

Happy Spring Break UNC Charlotte!

But today is about much more than that - today is International Women's Day. Women around the world will be honored in their homes, businesses and countries. It is an opportunity to remember those who have gone before and opened doors for this generation and to recognize those who continue to do so. It's a chance to celebrate the different perspectives, skills and ideas that women contribute to the world.

UNC Charlotte will be celebrating this day on Thursday, March 25 from 3:30-5:00 PM in the Student Union rom 340 G-I. We will have a reception, hear remarks by Ambassador Linda Tarr-Whelan and recognize UNC Charlotte women who have been nominated by their colleagues, friends and peers. The celebration is open to faculty, staff and students. This year we celebrate 5 years of recognizing women on-campus - and this year will mark the honoring of at least 100 women at UNC Charlotte. What a beautiful tradition and heritage.

If there is a UNC Charlotte woman you would like to nominate to receive recognition at the ceremony, check to make sure she meets the nomination criteria and fill out a form. Details are located on our website.
