On Thursday, March 1, the FIT Diversity Council will present WOW: Women on Women, a one-day symposium of inspirational stories, recollections and messages for and about women. WOW: Women on Women is sponsored by a grant received from SUNY’s Office of Diversity and Educational Equity.
This symposium, the first of its kind at FIT, was designed in response to requests from students who were seeking a forum that would address conditions for women today—particularly within the context of careers in the fields for which they are being educated at FIT. About 85 percent of our students are women. They know that despite important gains in past decades, women continue to lag both in the workplace and in many aspects of our culture.
