From a UW press release:
“Got Equality,” an event celebrating the contributions of Wyoming’s outstanding women leaders, will be held Friday, Sept. 26, from 4-9 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn and University of Wyoming Conference Center.
A variety of workshops for students will be offered from 4-6 p.m. A social hour is set for 6-7 p.m., with the banquet to follow. During dinner, award-winning writer Terry Tempest Williams’ keynote address will examine “equality and contemporary issues facing women in the Rocky Mountain West.”
Each year, the University of Wyoming selects a group of women to help promote women’s leadership programs on campus, says Sara Axelson, UW vice president for student affairs.
“This year, this group of women will host an event that will involve both women student leaders from UW and women in established leadership roles from across the state of Wyoming,” she says. “Our goal is to bring together the women providing leadership in business, industry, education, politics, and the environment today to meet the women student leaders at the University of Wyoming who will be providing the leadership of tomorrow.”
