Virtual gatherings organized by the Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women and the Office for Diversity and Inclusion are now available to help share ideas and meet fellow Rockets while working remotely.

The virtual meetups, each available on Webex and listed on the Eberly Center website, include:

• We Persist: Mondays at 10 a.m. join women-identified faculty or staff who are looking for connection and inspiration to persist through these unprecedented times. The Eberly Center asks participants to come as you are, when you can, and they’ll be here for you. For the Webex link and additional information, contact ecwomen@utoledo.edu.

• Coffee Break For Caretakers: Wednesdays at 10 a.m. take a break with the Eberly Center and other caretakers. Learn strategies for working from home with children, prioritizing self-care, and advocating for yourself in the workplace. For the Webex link and additional information email ecwomen@utoledo.edu.

• Sister Circle: Fridays at 9 a.m. the Office of Diversity and Inclusion is hosting Sister Circle, a space for women of color to meet, gain support, and promote positivity. For the Webex link and additional information, email Malaika Bell at malaika-beauta.bell@utoledo.edu.

For additional support and resources related to working remotely, staying active, and caring for family members during COVID-19, UToledo faculty and staff are encouraged to visit Rocket Wellness.
