Davis & Elkins College is proud to announce a celebration of Women’s History Month under the powerful theme: “Women who Advocate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.” The college invites both the campus community and the wider Elkins community to join in a series of events designed to honor the contributions of women who have tirelessly worked to create a more equitable and inclusive society.

This year’s theme shines a spotlight on the courageous women who have broken barriers and paved the way for future generations in the relentless pursuit of equality, diversity, and inclusion across all spheres of society. Dr. Aubrey Neumann, Assistant Professor of Theatre at Davis & Elkins College, has curated the exhibit “Powerful and Influential Women of Davis & Elkins College” featuring powerful and influential women who have passed through the College’s doors. This exhibit highlights the accomplishments of prominent alumna, alongside current and former administrators, faculty, and staff. “While inevitably incomplete, we hope that the exhibit serves as a starting place to honor the many hardworking women who have passed through Davis & Elkins College and inspire many more to come.” Neumann explains. This exhibit will open on Thursday, March 28th at 11 a.m. in the Madden Center Rotunda.

The College will also offer two virtual events in celebration of Women’s History Month.

• Film Screening of Hiding in the Walls on Thursday, March 21 at 8:00 p.m.

Davis & Elkins College is committed to fostering an environment where the achievements and struggles of women are acknowledged and celebrated, not just during Women’s History Month, but year-round. We believe that by coming together as a community to learn from and celebrate women who advocate for equity, diversity, and inclusion, we can make strides toward a more just and inclusive world.
