College Women Rock Week

Sunday, 03.11.18

Under the direction of the President’s Diversity Council and Student Affairs, Walsh University will host the Sixth Annual College Women Rock Week. We join the nation in commemorating National Women’s History Month with a week-long celebration of special events focused on empowering female leaders.

Echoing the national theme of YET SHE PERSISTED, this year’s theme, “HERStory: Celebrating Stories of Leadership, Faith and Courage,” invites the campus community to join in as we continue to explore themes of gender equity, faith exploration, and academic and professional excellence as told through the unique voices of diverse women.
