Women's History Month celebration continues at Penn State York

Penn State York’s Women’s History Month celebration continues at noon Tuesday, March 24, with “What’s My Line?,” in the Lee R. Glatfelter Library on campus.  An interactive career event, this panel features a select group of Penn State York women with interesting and circuitous career paths. 

This lunch and learn event is part of Women’s History Month, but also is sponsored by the Advising and Career Development office’s  Career Week activities, and ConnectED, a program in which first-year students earn points for participating in campus activities and making connections to others on campus. All attendees at this event have the opportunity to win prizes, hear some interesting stories, and make connections.  This program is free and open to the public.

Panelists, all from Penn State York, for “What’s my Line?, are: Jane Emery, director of advising and career development and Division of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) coordinator; Holly L. Gumke, director of business services; and Dawn Oswald, information resources and services supervisor. Barbara Eshbach, head librarian at the Lee R. Glatfelter Library on campus, is the moderator.

Later in the week, a lunch and learn panel, "Being Queer Here," will discuss the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Intersex Ally (LGBTQIA) community and the issues faced by members of this group. Panelists will answer questions and highlight the various triumphs and concerns of this community at a very interesting point in history. This event is set for Thursday, March 26, at noon in the Community Room of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center.

Panelists include Javier Aguayo, assistant professor of political science at York College; Kelly Gainer, from Planned Parenthood; Hannah Wagoner, a recent graduate of York College who is entering a master’s degree program in human sexuality; and Carla Christopher-Waid, York poet laureate emerita, host of Culture and Main on WRCT, director of Community Arts Ink, and a candidate for York City Council.
