Women's Month at Virginia Tech

Women's Month 2020 graphic "Trailblazers"


Planning is underway for the annual Women’s Month celebration at Virginia Tech. In March 2020, the Women's Month calendar of events will spotlight contributions and accomplishments of past and present trailblazers and envision a future of possibilities.

Women’s Month recognizes, affirms, and showcases the achievements, concerns, and diversity of women. A feminist perspective – one that encourages and advances women of all races, political affiliations, national origins, religions, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and income levels – underlies all our programming. The annual event occurs in March in conjunction with the National Women’s History Month.

Women’s Month has historically represented Virginia Tech's broad commitment to celebrating diverse and inclusive communities. To honor this ongoing commitment, the Women’s Month 2020 calendar will include programs and events aligned with the Virginia Tech Principles of Community.

The Women's Center invites you to submit a program for inclusion in the Women’s Month calendar. The Women's Month 2020 calendar will be distributed widely throughout the campus and surrounding communities.

The deadline for program submissions is Friday, Feb. 7, 2020 by 11:59 PM EST. For more information and questions, contact Jessie Meltsner, Women's Month Coordinator at jmelts@vt.edu.
