Thriving Together in 2020–21
We are excited to be kicking off the 2020–2021 year with the theme Together!
We are stronger together when we work to ensure that every member of the Notre Dame community is treated with respect and dignity. We can achieve more together when we support, inspire, and mentor each other. And although we are still keeping our physical distance, we will come together remotely throughout the year for outstanding professional development, networking, and engagement opportunities.
Our Thrive! mission is to increase opportunities for women to be recruited, retained, and advanced as leaders at the University of Notre Dame. That means all women. We must work together to be better allies and advocates for women of color, who often face even tougher barriers to advancement in the workplace than their white female peers.
I welcome your suggestions for programming and resources around this year's theme, proposals to partner with our fellow ERGs, ideas on how to continue engaging male allies in our mission, or any other ideas you have about Thrive! more generally. So please, reach out to me or to any one of the other board members or committee chairs at any time. We would love to hear from you!
Yours in Notre Dame,
Kate Garry, Thrive! President
