    Womxn SPH Chat

    Zoom

    In honor of Women’s History Month, we are excited to create a virtual space for all the Womxn Faculty and Staff in our community. We are looking forward to coming together to talk and build community. This might include just catching up, or should people choose, sharing successes, challenges, and strategies for what has worked and what we have learned as Womxn working in the higher educational space over this past year.

    This event will take place on Friday, March 12th from 11am-12pm.

    We will use the World Cafe method to engage in conversation, this will allow us to have small intimate conversations prompted by questions posed by the facilitator. After some time in our small groups we will come together to “harvest” our ideas and strategies as a way to learn from and engage with each other on this journey.

    Please register here! We hope that you will join us in this space.

    About the lectureship

    The lecture is supported by The Dr. and Mrs. Frederick W. Barnes, Jr. Lectureship in Public Health, endowed through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. James S. Zisson ’74, in memory of Norma and Miles Zisson ’38. Dr. Barnes was a beloved member of the faculty who had strong interests in humanism and medicine, and who developed several innovations in teaching at Brown, including the use of authors and actors to read and perform pieces on health-relevant themes. Mrs. Barnes was a social worker who shared her husband’s love of students and teaching.
