Advocacy Forum III

Access to Postsecondary Education:

A snapshot of women in Tennessee now and a look toward the future

The Advocacy Forum III was held on November 7, 2019 at the Knoxville Museum of Art and was a great success! We had a informative evening learning about key research and information impacting women and girls in our region and the ways in which education is working to create pathways to self-sustainability.
