March is Women’s History Month and many campus departments, including the campus’ Chapter of Massachusetts Women in Public Higher Education, are hosting events all month long. 

Congress in 1987 declared March as National Women’s History Month in order to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of American women.

The month-long celebration got off to a fast start at BSU when an event offering free professional headshots was fully booked. (Organizers are looking into scheduling another session.)

The Bridgewater MWPHE is hosting the following events, which are free and open to faculty and staff. 

Monday, March 12: Chair Yoga. 12:30-1:30 p.m., RCC Small Ballroom. RSVP here

Thursday, March 15: Supporting the Success of Female Employees. 12-1p.m. RCC Council Chambers. Sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity and the BSU Chapter of MWPHE. RSVP to Kristine Bohmer at KBohmer@bridgew.edu

Tuesday, March 20: BSU Phenomenal Women Reception. 1-2:30 p.m. Dunn Conference Suite. Sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity and the BSU Chapter of MWPHE. RSVP here

Bridgewater started its own BSU Chapter of MWPHE in the fall of 2016. For more information visit the chapter’s website. (Story by Heather Harris Michonski, University News)
