A Conversation about Race and Gender Diversity – May 25th & 26th
May 26, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm
Hosted by SC WIL
Join women from all over the state to talk about race and gender diversity. We’ll talk about the big issues so you can share your story, learn from others, celebrate the progress made by trailblazers before us, and empower each other to tackle the disparities that remain. Plus we’ll make an exciting announcement about our Circles of Women! This event is also available on May 25th.
