The speakers series was exceedingly eye opening and unsealed, a great chance for panelists to share their stories and experiences and a better chance for panel participants to learn from the women professionals on campus. The ASSC Women’s History Month also included a series of social media posts of women student professionals, former and current student council members sharing their stories.
