      IWW Inset

      Capital University’s Women’s Empowerment Alliance and Global Student Association will be hosting International Women’s Week (IWW) at Capital University from March 4 through March 8 in honor of International Women’s Day. During the week, we will be primarily focusing on our community organization and our Capital University faculty-hosted presentation sessions. 

      The presentations will be on Wednesday, March 6, and are 25 or 55 minute educational and inspirational sessions taking place between 10 am and 4 pm. All sessions will be open to students, faculty, and the local community.

      The week will also include:

      • a donation drive
      • several film showings
      • a LGBTQ+ Panel
      • a faculty concert
      • a Women in STEM Panel
      • a discussion with Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom 
      • community service opportunities. 

      Capital faculty interested in leading a talk or discussion on topics of their choice broadly related to gender, human rights, and social justice can sign-up for a time slot here

      Capital student organizations interested in leading a talk or discussion can sign-up for a time slot here

      You are also encouraged to invite others (both within Capital or in the greater Central Ohio community) who might have an interest in presenting at this event.
