On Friday, March 3, the Douglass Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee presented the fourth annual Women's Day at Douglass. Over 200 students, staff, and community members gathered in the Kathleen W. Ludwig Global Village Living-Learning Center for an activity fair, student performances, lunch, and more.
Performers included musician Lance Margarett O. Panes DRC’23, spoken word artists Herrin Oum Fortenette DRC'25 and Kim Santiago DRC'23, The Rutgers Belly Dancing Troupe, and the Rutgers Irish Step Dancing group. Students also put together a fashion show during which they displayed and shared clothing styles from their cultures and heritages.
Held annually, Women's Day at Douglass commemorates and honors the resilience, strength, and work of women globally. While Douglass strives to empower students on a daily basis, the College unites organizations and students across the Rutgers–New Brunswick campus on Women's Day. This year's theme was "Embrace Equity."
