Two for the price of one
Because the past week was so busy on the Birmingham-Southern campus, this week's Photo of the Week brings you two photos for the price of one.
Women and human dignity —Eleven women leaders who have made significant contributions across the U.S. and the world toward advancing human dignity were honored during Birmingham-Southern's Women, Leadership, and Human Dignity event held on campus Feb. 27. In addition to interacting with students in the classroom, the women participated in a Town Hall Meeting discussion held in Munger Hall Auditorium (photo above) on the role of women in public health, politics, and advocacy and justice. Following the Town Hall Meeting, the women were honored at a luncheon where they gave advice to the overflow crowd on their vast experiences in advancing human dignity. The event was part of Birmingham-Southern's year-long Sesquicentennial celebration, which has a theme of “Advancing Human Dignity.”
