PWC Events to look forward to in 2017 - 2018

Color Yourself Calm
Description: After reviewing the feedback you provided us in the PWC Member Survey, we found many people are interested in networking and wellness initiatives. With that, we are excited to share that we will be hosting an evening of wellness and networking entitled Color Yourself Calm! In an effort to connect with other members of the PWC and partake in the popular relaxation activity of mindful coloring, we invite you to join us to chat and de-stress. RSVP here.
When: November 13, 2017 from 4:30-6pm
Location: S1-123 (Medical School Building)

A Dialogue: Thoughts about Leadership from a Women's Perspective
Times are a changing, or are they? Between the rapid advances in science and technology, a chaotic political landscape and the emergence of multiple generations of women working together; it is time to take a step back and examine the myths and realities of women’s experience in the workplace. . . Join us alongside the speaker for this event, Dr. Marianne E. Felice, former Chair of the Department of Pediatrics and Professor of Pediatrics and Obstetrics & Gynecology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
When: November 29, 2017 from 12-1:30pm
Location: UMMHC Front St Office (For those at other locations, this is a great opportunity to take a little field trip over to another site and meet other members of the PWC!)

Winter Potluck
Description: To ring in the new year, we would like the women of the PWC to get together and have a potluck. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the members of the committee and network. If you'd like to help organize this, please contact the PWC co-chairs.
When: TBD
Location: University Campus

Dress for Success
Description: We are excited to continue UMass' annual Dress for Success fundraiser in the Spring of 2018. While the event will take place on the University Campus, we will have collection pickups at many of our affiliated sites. This event requires quite a bit of coordination, so we will be looking for volunteers to help sort the clothes and set up ahead of time. 
When: Spring 2018
Location: University Campus
