The Student Affairs / Diversity and Inclusion Office invites all students, staff and faculty at the Valencia Campus to join the #BeBoldForChange campaign launched this year to conmemorate International Women's Day over a picnic at the riverbed!

Within the context of March as "Women's History Month", International Women's Day (March 8) marks a global day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. March 8 also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity... And that's what we are planning to do! During our picnic, we'll share our own individual personal and professional experiences and we'll also agree on a specific set of commitments that we can make as a community to make our immediate environment a more equal one.

The Valencia Campus is fully commited to the efforts of promoting gender equality within and beyond the music industry. This picnic is another opportunity to start thinking about what this means to you as an individual and how you plan to join and commit to these efforts!

We'll meet at Front Desk at 1.30PM to walk together to our secret picnic location... We hope you can join us!
