The WomenNC team united with 6000+ people from over 185 countries, with an overcapacity crowd at their panel presentation March 11th.
On April 15th, WomenNC Fellows, from UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke University, and NC State University will share their inspiring experiences and new concepts that could be replicated in our community; extending the reach of the U.N.
