In conjunction with the 14th annual ISU Center for New Directions Women and Work Conference, the Center is offering an evening presentation by Conference keynote speaker, Courtney Reed-Jenkins on micro-messages. Reed-Jenkins is a nationally-recognized expert on equity in education working on gender issues affecting girls and women in education. Micro-messages are small, unconscious communications that are sent through words, body language, and other communications. For under-served students, micro-messages subtly, yet powerfully shape the culture, classrooms and futures of these students.
ISU faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend the evening presentation on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, at 7 pm, in Rendezvous Building Suites A & B. Admission is free and refreshments will be served. Contact the Center for New Directions at 282-2454 for information.
The Women and Work Conference will be held on Wednesday, March 5, 2014, from 8 am to 2:30 pm in the Pond Student Union and is attended by ISU freshmen women, high school girls throughout Southeast Idaho, and community women.
