A new series of programs for women begins at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay next week. After Thoughts takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. March 1, in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts foyer. The first program in the inaugural series is “The Beauty of Bees and Their Impact on Our Lives,” presented by UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Amy Wolf, Ecology.
The After Thoughts series is designed to connect community women with UW-Green Bay, showcase UW-Green Bay’s faculty and staff, convene women after their workday for learning, enrichment and fun, and provide “After Thoughts” for women to take with them when they leave. Cost is $11 for hors d’oeuvres and the program.
Two “pilot” gatherings will be hosted this spring, and if successful, will continue with four programs in the 2011-12 academic year.
The second program, from 5 to 7 p.m., April 5, will be led by Associate Prof. Lucy Arendt, Business Administration. Her presentation is titled “In the Face of Disaster, How Resilient is Our Community?”
Event sponsors are the Schneider National Foundation and Billie Kress. Co-sponsors and organizers of the event are UW-Green Bay’s Bev Carmichael, Assistant Chancellor, University Advancement; Julia Wallace, Provost; Shannon Badura, Administrative Specialist, Advancement; Cathy Harden, wife of Chancellor Thomas Harden; and from the Green Bay community, Lise Lotte Gammeltoft and Suzy Pfeifer.
