March 24, 2015

This year’s annual all campus meeting of the Penn State Commission for Women will be held on April 22, at the Lehigh Valley campus in Center Valley, Pennsylvania.  Chancellor Ann Williams will welcome representatives from all Penn State campuses at 10:30 a.m. in room 135. 

“The annual all campus meeting at Penn State offers a chance for people from all over the commonwealth to share information about their CFW activities, and to develop working relationships among the widely distributed community of people interested in CFW's mission,” stated David Passmore, co-chair of Penn State’s Commission for Women.  

The Commission for Women Lehigh Valley will share their own new initiatives from 2014-15, which include a fundraiser excursion to Winterthur Museum sponsored by Corporate and Community Education; multiple campus-wide card-marking events for local senior living facilities; and the upcoming Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event which will take place on April 7 to protest rape, sexual assault and gender violence.

Diane McAloon, chair of CFW Lehigh Valley, and Tai Yin Huang, co-chair of the CFW Campus Liaison Committee, have announced that there will be a panel discussion and a question-and-answer session following the Commission for Women’s annual business meeting and lunch.

The panel discussion is titled “STEM Initiatives at Penn State Lehigh Valley and Beyond...,” and will be conducted by Penn State Lehigh Valley STEM faculty members Tai Yin Huang, Julie Ealy, Jackie McLaughlin, Karen Kackley, Alison Bonner and Maryam Kiani.

At the close of the event, campus tours will be available, and science lab observation will be welcomed.

Registration is available for Penn State Commission for Women members on the event website.
