Password: EmpowerHour With the fall semester just beginning, we are excited to bring everyone together our summer Empower Hour that was rescheduled due to the power outages! And what better topic to feature other than the amazing work that women have done throughout history to give us some motivation for approaching our own work this fall. During this Empower Hour, we invite everyone to: • Participate in some group herstory trivia • Chat about the unsung heroines of UConn • Discuss ways that the unsung heroine persona appears in our own work • Share our excitement (and fears) about starting the fall semester

The Women’s Affinity Group at the University of Connecticut seeks to strengthen and empower the network of all women faculty, staff, and graduate assistants in our community across various identities through professional development workshops and social networking events. We aim to highlight and provide a space to process the various ways that gender matters in the personal and professional lives of women.
