Poole College HERstory Month Celebrates Success of Alumnae
During the month of March, the Poole College of Management will be celebrating Women’s HERstory Month and the achievements of female graduates. This year the theme of HERstory Month is Our Voices, Our Bodies, Our Stories: Strategies for Radical Self-Love, which was created by NC State’s Women’s Center.
“Celebrating the intersectionality of women in business is one of the best parts of my job as undergraduate programs director of diversity and inclusion,” said Tayah Butler, director of diversity and inclusion. “The campus-wide theme for the month is bold and relevant for our current times. Our expression of the ‘our voices, our bodies and our stories’ for Poole College will highlight how these themes collide with our professional identities.”
Poole will be hosting a variety of events celebrating the theme of the month, including:
This lunch and learn session featuring Sepi Saidi, founder and CEO of SEPI Inc., will focus on Saidi’s personal achievements and her experience as a woman in a male-dominated industry.
