Three Steps to Claiming Your Voice: A Framework for Empowerment
The real power of the women who fought for the right to vote was that they would not be silenced. Yet for all the ways higher education seeks to foster diverse voices, it remains a space where women’s authority is regularly challenged and their voices interrupted, ignored, or silenced. In this hands-on, 90-minute workshop geared toward faculty and graduate students, participants will explore aspects of their professional lives when they feel silenced, learn about the costs of not speaking up, and identify concrete strategies for more confidently advocating for themselves.
MTSU Women of Color in Health Care: Women STEM Professionals in the Workforce After Graduation
As part of 2021 National Women's History Month, MTSU graduates and STEM professionals share their stories with the campus and the community. The panelists will answer questions about why they chose careers in health care, how they traveled their career paths, and what they are doing today.
STEM graduate students at MTSU will share their stories with local high school students and undergraduates. The women will talk about why they chose to major in STEM, what it is like being a woman in STEM classes (where they are often in the minority), how to find one’s voice, and how to reach out for advice.
