Missed “The Power of Words”? In an increasingly global society, the importance of literacy is at an all-time high. The privilege of literacy opens a world of knowledge to the reader, whether in a blog, in a newspaper, or on twitter. Words, alone, have the ability to inspire, such as those presented by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. or those chanted by protestors in Egypt, Libya, New York, and Washington, DC; therefore, we all have the capability of bettering the society we live in by reading, writing, and encouraging the literacy of others. Today, read a book, read another to a friend or child, and educate yourself on the possibilities of literacy.

Sincerely,

Aria S. Halliday,

President

Don’t Just Talk About It, Do Something! Plug in to opportunities to turn our discussions about beauty and women in the workplace into action. Beauty

Professional Development

We know that in order to counteract the dominant standards of beauty, we must begin cultivating our own self-worth and the self-worth of others. If you are interested in on-campus projects to promote real beauty and healthy esteem, contact kagaston@davidson.edu for more information.

Continue cultivating relationships with the students, faculty, and staff who attended the last talk on Women in the Workplace. Take these next steps: create or update your resume, reach out to a faculty or staff member present at the talk, and READ! Read about your field of interest and fields outside of your interest. An idle mind kills the grind. Contact kagaston@davidson.edu with any questions.
