Your AAWCC officers would like to encourage you to get involved in this great opportunity:
The March 9, 2013 Expanding Your Horizons (EYH)event sponsored by Salt Lake Community College is a one-day event designed to encourage girls in grades 6-12 to consider careers in science and technology. This year the event will be held at the South City Campus (1575 S State Street). The EYH Network is recognized nationally for its decades-long commitment to the early development of interest in mathematics and science among young women, making significant strides toward its goal of developing a pool of qualified women to undertake careers in mathematics, science and engineering.
The Steering Committee is requesting volunteer support to assist with registration and support during the day of the event. Please contact either Jean Bower at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kathy Hurd at Kathy.email@example.com or 801-957-4735.
The National Association of Women Business Owners-Salt Lake City is sponsoring a showing of the film Miss Representation by Jennifer Siebel Newsom. The show is being presented free of charge at the Grand Theatre at South City Campus on March 19th at 6:00 PM. For those of you who missed the showing last year, this is your second chance to see “the film that explores how the media’s misrepresentation of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence.” For more information and to RSVP, please visit their website at www.nawboslc.org.
The Salt Lake Community College Chapter of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges is pleased to invite you to our Miss Representation Screening & Panel Discussion. The screening is free and open to the public on a first come, first served basis.

About the Miss Representation:
Miss Representation explores women’s under-representation in positions of power and influence and challenges the limited and often disparaging portrayals of women in media. Writer/Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom brings together some of America’s most influential thought leaders in politics, news, entertainment, and academia, including Condoleezza Rice, Katie Couric, Geena Davis, Lisa Ling, Marissa Mayer, Cory Booker, Jean Kilbourne, and Jackson Katz, to give us an inside look at the media’s messaging. As one of the most persuasive and pervasive forces of communication in our culture, mainstream media is educating yet another generation that a woman’s primary value lies in her youth, beauty and sexuality—not in her capacity as a leader. Miss Representation premiered in the documentary competition at Sundance Film Festival.

About the Distinguished Faculty Lecture series:
The Distinguished Faculty Lecturer program seeks to identify faculty who are engaged in important and exciting work that they will share with colleagues and the larger community. Therefore, the work to be shared must be significant to the entire College community. The award recipient will develop a project that culminates in a public presentation during Spring Semester. The project undertaken must be related to the faculty member’s field of study or teaching assignments.
Don’t forget to clean out your closet and donate new and gently-used professional clothing to women who are entering the workforce. “Women Helping Women” is a project sponsored by the Junior League of Salt Lake City. Women who need assistance are referred to the Junior League’s program by government and social service agencies. “Women Helping Women” has served nearly 10,000 women since 1996. The American Association for Women in Community Colleges, SLCC chapter is teaming up with the Junior League of Salt Lake City to hold a college-wide professional women’s clothing drive from January 3 – February 3, 2011.
Please share this invitation with other women who may not be AAWCC members who may wish to participate in the clothing drive. Thanks to everyone who has already donated. Lori was kind enough to send us a picture of her collection site. We would love to collect some more items.
