Visitation Women's Day, held every four years, is an opportunity for Middle and Upper School students to step outside the regular curriculum and gain insight into careers, community involvement and current women's issues. Held on April 5, the theme for Women's Day 2023 is Trailblazers: Women who lead the way. The day will showcase a variety of female leaders and the many ways that women can trailblaze in various arenas such as science/engineering, performing arts, business/management, education, medicine, marketing/entrepreneurship, manufacturing and more! If you are interested in speaking at Women’s Day, please contact Katie Najjar, Alumnae Engagement Manager or Cecilia Petschel, Director of Communications & Marketing.
