Colorado State University – Pueblo Women’s Studies hosts young women’s conference
PUEBLO – Colorado State University-Pueblo Women's Studies Program, in conjunction with campus and community agencies, will host a one-day conference for juniors and seniors from area high schools and educational communities to explore goals and options with a focus on the importance of higher education. “Exploring dreams and opportunities” is the theme for the 7th annual Young Women’s Real World Conference from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 3 in the Occhiato University Center Ballroom.
The fall event is the brainchild of Conference Coordinator Dr. Carol Loats, a member of the University’s history and women’s studies faculty. Trained coaches work with students throughout the day, panelists discuss life stories and options, and each participant receives materials to help develop her skills.
“This has become such a wonderful community-campus event,” said Loats. “Without our local agency partners, we couldn’t manage such a solid workshop.”
Seating for this year’s event is full, but persons interested in future programs should contact Loats at 549-2348.
