Please join us at the Kate Dunwoody Society Luncheon as we celebrate and support women pursuing careers in technology and the trades. This year’s event features extraordinary women who are inspiring others to pursue their owns paths to success. Your support will help provide scholarships for women students at Dunwoody College.
The luncheon program will highlight the new Pathways to Careers (P2C) program’s exciting mission to attract, train, and graduate underserved and underrepresented populations in close partnership with community, businesses, and industries. Through its youth outreach, the P2C program will benefit women by increasing awareness among young women of color of the high-pay, high-demand careers available as a Dunwoody graduate.
The scholarship funds raised at the luncheon will help with the mission of removing the financial barriers for all women students at Dunwoody College.
