Message from the President
We are excited to kick off the 2019–2020 year with the theme Champions for Change!
We can think about this in two ways—first is championing each other—supporting and mentoring fellow women in the workplace, and providing outstanding professional development, networking, and engagement opportunities focused on women and issues specific to working women.
The second is reaching out across campus to engage male allies in Thrive’s mission to increase opportunities for women to be recruited, retained, and advanced as leaders at the University of Notre Dame.
I welcome your suggestions for programming or any other ideas you have to contribute to the Champions for Change effort and to Thrive! more generally. So please, reach out to me or any one of the other board members or committee chairs at any time.
Thank you so much to all of our officers, chairs, committee members, and ambassadors for your willingness to dedicate some of your time and energy to Thrive! As a working mom myself, I know time and energy are precious commodities, and I am so grateful to each and every one of you. I'm thrilled to be partnering with all of you in the coming year!
Yours in Notre Dame,
Kate Garry, Thrive! President
