Women to Women Spring Forum – April 8, 2021

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


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

COVID-19 has impacted women and children in unique ways. What are the most important issues and how can we most effectively help?

Danita Brown Young

Join us in conversation with Dr. Danita Brown Young, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at the University of Illinois at Urbana‐Champaign, moderated by W2W Steering Committee member Dr. Doris M. Houston, Interim Assistant to the President for Diversity and Inclusion at Illinois State University.

They will discuss such topics from recent news reports as:

  • “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”

Before joining the University of Illinois, Dr. Brown Young served as the youngest and first African American woman Dean of Students at Purdue. She 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.
