25th Anniversary

With the celebration of Women’s History Month in March 2021, it seemed fitting that we would officially kick off our 25th anniversary. Throughout the remainder of the year, many celebrations will take place including an “At The Table” conversation series, a 25th Anniversary cookbook with not just standard recipes but recipes for success, activism, and other antidotes. A big 25th anniversary event is slated for November.

Check back often as event information is updated and new events and initiatives are added.

At The Table with the Women's Center
Inspired by the Shirley Chisholm quote, ‘if you don’t have a seat at the table, bring a folding chair,’” we invite you to come together in conversation and community to nourish your souls and feed your passion. This event will bring important people in the history of the Women's Center to the table in conversation with students to talk about how far we have come...and how far we still have yet to go. 

At The Table will be a monthly conversation series featuring intergenerational conversations across many different identities focusing on topics such as women and leadership, women and athletics, Art and Activism and more. Join us as we honor those who have paved the way and invest in those who are continuing the journey on the quest for equity and inclusion.

Recipes for Change
As we explore the power of gathering, we are reminded that food -- the fare most commonly found “At the Table” -- has been a powerful common denominator in all movements throughout history.  Our goal is to create a commemorative “At the Table” cookbook featuring many of the recipes and stories we receive. We will publish a limited number of commemorative print editions to raise money for Women’s Center Scholarships and to help challenge food insecurity on campus. We will also provide excepts from this collection online.

We believe your recipes and stories matter. We invite you to share a family recipe, a new recipe, and/or a story about how being “At the Table” has strengthened you and propelled you forward.

25th Anniversary Event
Join us as we formally celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Kent State Women's Center. The event will reflect on the successes of the past 25 years and look forward to co-creating the next 25 with the support of our alumni, our elders, and wisdom keepers, as well as the students who are carrying the torches into this new world.

Save the Date for November 2021.
