The Catharine S. Eberly Center has several events slated this week.
The Eberly Center will hold an open house Tuesday, Oct. 25, from 5 to 8 p.m. to kick off its partnership with the Women of Waterford Foundation.
Members of the Women of Waterford Foundation and The University of Toledo communities are welcome to come for an informative evening to learn more about the center’s programs and services. Donations of clean, gently used professional clothing on hangers will be accepted at this event.
In honor of National Novel Writing Month in November, the Eberly Center is teaming up with Carlson Library and the Writing Center to offer several events. “Women Writing: Finding Our Voices, Sharing Our Stories” will take place Wednesday, Oct. 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Student Union Ingman Room. The event will focus on the writing and publishing process.
This partnership also is providing support for participants of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), an organization formed to provide a structured writing schedule throughout November. By following the national guidelines, participants will have enough written to edit into a 200-page novel. For a schedule of group writing sessions and workshops, click here.
To foster academic research and writing, the Eberly Center is promoting the cultivation of a supportive environment with its new series, Lunch With a Purpose. Each month, participants will bring their lunches and hear presentations of work from women researchers at The University of Toledo. The expectation is for participants to offer feedback and camaraderie.
The first Lunch With a Purpose will be held Thursday, Oct. 27, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Eberly Center, located in Tucker Hall Room 0168. Dr. Celia Williamson, UT professor of social work and director of the Human Trafficking and Social Justice Institute, will present “Human Trafficking 101 With an Emphasis on the Role of Domestic Violence in Trafficking.” To RSVP for this free event, click here.
