A Dialog: Thoughts about Leadership from a Women's Perspective
Times are a changing, or are they?

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.

Dress for Success
Description: We are excited to continue UMass' annual Dress for Success fundraiser in the Spring of 2020. 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.
