Pursuing higher education topic of Women's History Month talkMarch 19, 2012
EAU CLAIRE — In honor of Women's History Month, guest speaker and University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire alumna Catherine Emmanuelle will give a presentation titled, "Ohhhh, the Education Tip: Yo, Ladies Are You Wit Me?" at 5 p.m. March 27 in The Cabin of Davies Center at UW-Eau Claire.
Emmanuelle's presentation will focus on her experiences while pursuing higher education, advice for claiming your education and how the "infectious dance beats and cutting raps" of the group TLC encourage educational attainment and autonomy.
Emmanuelle graduated from the UW-Eau Claire in December 2011 with a bachelor's degree in women's studies. She attended NEW Leadership Wisconsin in June 2008, an annual program that teaches college women the value of civic engagement and encourages them to see themselves as empowered leaders who can participate in politics and public policy.
This year's Women's History Month theme is "Women's Education, Women's Empowerment."
Emmanuelle's lecture is free and open to the public.
