To celebrate and honor Women's History Month, we would like to invite you to the Women of Color in Academia Panel and Dinner.  Enjoy a nice dinner with some of Penn's distinguished women of color faculty/staff/administrator and hear them discuss their breadth of experiences, diverse expertise, and varied paths to their current roles/positions in academia.  This is a great opportunity to learn about challenges they have faced as women of color along the way, how they overcame them, and the wisdom and advice they have to share about how to engage and navigate spaces inside and outside of the academy. 

Panelists:

o   Donita Brady, PhD —  Medicine

o   Vivian Gadsden, EdD — Education

o   Kelsey Jones, PhD — Education

o   Fariha Khan, PhD —  Asian American Studies
