Description

We invite you to join us for a very special 30th Anniversary Celebratory Conference with the University System of Maryland (USM) Women’s Forum. For 30 years, this organization has been LEADing the way by:

Leveraging our resources for maximum growth

Engaging with our community through conferences and webinars

Advocating on behalf of women’s issues

Developing our community by providing scholarships and awards

This year’s conference, Using Our Legacy to Fuel Our Future, will explore all the work- we collectively as women- have accomplished thus far and prepare us for the work we have lying ahead.

Because we are such a diverse community in thought, style, and many other ways we have decided to pilot a track program with a focus on diversity, inclusion, and equity. If you are interested in completing this track, please indicate that below as space is limited for this pilot program. If you are not interested in doing the diversity track be prepared to absorb plenty of information to help enhance you both in your personal and professional journey.

We are very excited to have two keynote speakers this year- one in the morning and one in the afternoon! Both women have extensive backgrounds in global education and cross-cultural learning. We are honored that they have decided to celebrate with us and share their knowledge.

Our morning keynote will be presented by former Salisbury University (SU) President Dr. Janet Dudley-Eschbach. During her 18-year tenure at SU she made many significant changes and improvements to promote global education, diversity, inclusion, and equity.

Our afternoon keynote will be presented by current Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. DeBrenna LaFa Agbenyiga from Bowie State University (BSU). Dr. Agbenyiga has 19 years of experience in higher education as a professor, researcher and administrator.

The program will run from 8:30am-4:15pm with a reception to follow.
