Women's Appreciation Banquet: Celebrating Women's HERstory here on campus
The Lovely Ladies of Beta Kappa Sigma, Black and Latina Sorority, Inc., along with the Women's Center presents our 6th Annual Women's Appreciation Banquet, which is the closing banquet of Women's Herstory Month. This annual event started as a recognition for women on campus who specifically impacted and motivated the women of Beta Kappa Sigma, Black and Latina Sorority, by either being a mentor, giving resources or just being an overall inspirational figure in our lives. Over the past 6 years, the event has expanded to not only the sisters impacted by these phenomenal women, but to those we see have been inspirational to other students on campus.
We as the Women's center encourage you to participate in this event not only because it is incorporated as our Herstory event, where we celebrate the heard and unheard stories of historically influential women. But as well to generally support the women making a difference here in our students, faculty and staffers lives and being an overall inspirational being to the campus community. It is very empowering to continue to foster appreciation to these individuals who have been nominated by the community. Join us for a great lunch as we congratulate the women of Ramapo College of New Jersey who have been chosen by the the college community to receive this recognition. You are welcome to Invite Friends! Please RSVP if you can here
