APSU celebrating Women’s Empowerment Month with several events

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – For the past two years, Austin Peay State University (APSU) has celebrated Women’s History Month by hosting a week’s worth of events dedicated to honoring and celebrating women from all walks of life.

Each one takes a unique approach in recognizing women’s pioneering leadership and their impact on the diverse areas of education. 

Women’s Empowerment Month will begin on March 14th at noon in the MUC 103 BC with Lunchtime Forum: Let’s Talk about Pronouns. Montgomery County District 21 Commissioner David Shelton and LGBTQ+ Clarksville: The Kaleidoscope Network will be in attendance, and pizza will also be served.

On March 15th from 5:30pm until 7:30pm at 416 College Street, APSU will host a Women’s Empowerment Month KickOff. Speakers will include Dannelle F. W. Whiteside, APSU’s vice president for legal affairs and organizational strategy, and Valerie Guzman, CEO of United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region.

The goal is to encourage participants to take action, care for their mental and physical health and show appreciation for others.
