Night of women's empowerment

Join The Hawkettes for an evening of music, education, and empowerment where the entire university community is invited to lift up and elevate the power of women. Using conversational prompts, discussion, and performance, share insight, learn from others, and feel inspired! The 2017 special guest was Mary Lambert.
