March 2014 Upcoming Programs
A Women's History Month Lecture
On Thursday, March 20, 2014, Natalie R. Manor, executive coach and business entrepreneur for 28 years, will present "Gender Issues? Then, Now and How We Are Doing." Location for the Manor lecture is the East Tennessee Room, D.P. Culp University Center. Start time is 5:00 p.m.
Manor's lecture is a retrospective of gender issue history from 1900 to 2014. With personal experiences that include living with her grandmother for 30 years, having a working mother, and being a single parent, Manor will help this sometimes serious and contentious topic land where it belongs. . . in our awareness and in our behavioral control.
When Manor started her business in 1986, they asked that her "husband" co-sign for her financial responsibilities. Manor contends that the landscape of "gender" remains not only interesting, but provocative in all areas of our lives.
This Women's History Month Lecture is sponsored by the Women's Resource Center. A question/answer session and reception follow Manor's talk. For more information, contact the Women's Resource Center at 423- 439-5772. This lecture is free and open to the public.
Local artist and self-awareness guide Pam Murray, B.A., M.B.A., is guest facilitator for "You are the Art." Scheduled for Tuesday, March 25, 2014, location is the Campus Center Building, room 220. Start time is noon.
Murray aids participants in focusing on how they are both being art and becoming art, being and becoming the creative expression of themselves no matter what it is someone is doing. This means viewing life as an adventure, letting go of the judgments that have dictated how life should look. The heart is the paintbrush for this creative workshop. Participants use their creativity to get energy moving in the right direction, using a unique form with collage to discover and embody life through an offering of art in the world.
Reservations are required . To reserve a space for Murray's Women's History Month Workshop, contact the Women's Resource Center at 423-439-5772. This workshop is free and open to the public.
