For Immediate Release

The Diversity Alliance at Georgia Perimeter College will host the Georgia Women's Conference of 2013 on March 22 and 23 at the Clarkston Campus.

The theme of the conference, which will offer educational workshops and networking opportunities, is “The Female Perspective in Art, Scholarship and Politics.” Workshop topics include women’s health, fine arts, career advancement, international issues, financial advisement and more.

“Women make up 62 percent of the student population at GPC. We want to acknowledge and empower them, because that is our job as educators,” said conference organizer Tiffany Delvalle. “Diversity has always been the one thing that made GPC stand out from the crowd. We see this conference as an opportunity for our faculty, staff and students to come together and celebrate that diversity.”

In addition, the Diversity Alliance is teaming up with the Fine Arts Department and the Chattahoochee Review to provide a weeklong series of events, activities and performances.

The price to attend the conference is $50; for GPC students with ID, $5; students at other institutions, $15; and $20 for conference presenters. For more information, visit https://giving.gpc.edu/sslpage.aspx?pid=455.
