March is Women’s History Month! As a result, many events and discussions will be happening at USC in March, including the annual USC Women’s Conference — Together We Thrive on March 8, 2022, which also marks International Women’s Day. The theme this year is Elevate.Educate.Empower!
The USC Women’s Conference is being offered both in-person and virtually and is open to the general public, alumni, staff, and students. The event kicks off with an inspirational discussion of leadership by USC President Carol L. Folt and will feature other sessions focused on health and wellness, entrepreneurship, professional development, and finance.
Additionally, President Folt will be leading another discussion among faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community members on Tuesday, March 1 at 12 p.m. to explore the theme “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.” You can join the event here.
We encourage you to check the USC events calendar for other Women’s History Month events.
