Women to Women Spring Forum – April 8, 2021

April 8 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm CDT

free

“Renewal and Recovery: The Future After COVID” will be the topic of the Women to Women Giving Circle’s virtual Spring Forum.

Danita Brown Young

Join us in conversation from 4:30-6 p.m. Thursday, April 8, with Dr. Danita Brown Young, moderated by W2W Steering Committee member Dr. Doris M. Houston.

From recent news reports:

  • “Young children are missing out on the important socialization of early learning.”
  • “Children are increasingly unreachable via Zoom, and some who sign in are in tears.”
  • “Female exodus from the workforce brought about by the pandemic has turned the clock back to 1988.”

What are the most important issues and how can we help the most effectively?

Dr. Danita M. Brown Young is the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at the University of Illinois at Urbana‐Champaign. Earlier, she served as the youngest and first African American woman Dean of Students at Purdue. Dr. Brown Young holds a B.A. in sociology from Kent State University, an M.A. in community counseling from Loyola University Chicago, and earned her Ph.D. in higher education administration from Ohio University. She is also the mother of a toddler, adding personal insights to her strong experience and knowledge about the impact of COVID in education and on women in the workforce.

Register by emailing Michele Evans at [email protected]. Zoom meeting information will be emailed to registered participants the week of the event.
