You won’t want to miss Rebecca Rodriguez, communications company owner and former award-winning television journalist next week at Southeast Campus. Rodriguez will discuss “So You Want to be a Reporter: Making it as a Journalist in the 21st Century” at 1 p.m. in the SE Conference Center.

On South Campus, leadership tips will be available March 23 from Capt. Julia Dunaway, chief social worker for the Federal Women’s Prison in Fort Worth.  Dunaway will discuss “The Young Women’s Leadership Track: Taking the Right Road” at 6 p.m. in the Forum Room in the Student Center.

TCC’s observances were launched with an Art Show Celebrating the 33rd Anniversary of Women in New Roles, a college credit program for women in transition returning to school, available at South, Southeast, Northeast and Trinity River campuses.

Events this week included a presentation by South Campus Education Chair Altheria Gaston and Carolyn Raab, CEO/Owner of the Bridge Boutique. Gaston discussed “A Look at the Life of Dorothy Height.”  Height was active in bridging cultures and fighting for equal rights for women and people of color and was the longest serving president of the National Council of Negro Women.

Raab was the speaker for the Women History Month luncheon themed “Spring Into Action.”
