IUP's Pres. Commission on Status of Women and AAUW, Indiana County
Branch in partnership with IUP’s Commission on Women and the IUP Women’s and
Gender Studies program will host an advocacy and equity training “Smart Start”

Social Science Bldg. Rm. 114. Program Facilitating the workshop will be Dr.
Melissa Swagger, IUP Sociology professor and director of IUP’s Commission on
Women. Start Smart is an interactive workshop
designed to give women the skills they need to earn fair
compensation. Over the course of her working life, a woman will earn
roughly $1 million less than a man – simply because she’s a woman. All IUP
students, women and men, and young professionals in our community are invited
to register online at: https://indiana-pa.aauw.net/start-smart/ There
is no admission and refreshments will be provided.
