April 18, 2015 was a Busy Day – Duke University Award & Fellows Present!
Duke’s Women Center Award:
A group of WomenNC Board and Fellows participated in the 25th anniversary celebration of the Duke University Women’s Center, during which, WomenNC was presented the WomC State Impact Award.
Beth Dehghan proudly received the award; sharing the following thoughts in her acceptance speech:
”……The partnership between academics and activism has played a very important role in bringing social change and gender equality, both locally and globally. WomenNC Fellows from Duke exemplify that important connection….. The strength of the academic community in the Triangle is instrumental to our work. This award is a recognition and symbol of many collaborative efforts which enhance our common goal: to raise a generation that honors women’s human rights.”
UNA-Wake Chapter (United Nations Association) Dinner Forum:
Six WomenNC 2015 Fellows shared reflections of their participation at the United Nations’ 59th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) and plans to utilize that experience moving forward. An excellent Q&A session followed their presentation.
