Visitation School Women's Day 2023
Visitation School Women’s Day is an occasion for Visitation Middle (6th-8th grades) and Upper School (9th-12th grades) students to step outside the regular curriculum and gain insight into careers, community involvement and current women’s issues. Women’s Day has been offered approximately every four years, the last event occurring in 2018. The 2023 theme is Trailblazers: Women Leading the Way. The overarching goal is to showcase different types of leaders and the many ways that women can trailblaze in various arenas such as science/engineering, performing arts, business/management, athletics, education, medicine, marketing/entrepreneurship, manufacturing and more!

Keynote Speaker - Rosalind Wiseman
For Women’s Day 23, we are excited to welcome Rosalind Wiseman for multiple speaking events at Vis. She is a multiple New York Times bestselling author whose publications include Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World—which was the basis for the movie Mean Girls. Rosalind is the co-founder of Cultures of Dignity an organization that partners with communities to reimagine how to bring dignity and social and emotional learning to all. As keynote speaker for Women’s Day 23, Rosalind will address both Middle and Upper School students.
We are also excited to welcome Rosalind for a special parent presentation on Tuesday, April 4 at 7 p.m. at DeSales Auditorium. Creating heart-to-heart relationships is at the core of a Visitation education, and we are eager to host Wiseman as she talks about how parents can support their daughters as they navigate friendships, social media, and growing into their best selves. Relying on a principle-based approach, Wiseman provides parents with strategies to help turn common social challenges into teachable moments that cultivate resilience and confidence. Parents, especially of girls, should plan to attend this event.
