Spring Celebration

WFUM Spring Celebration 2021

Thank you to all who joined us for our annual Spring Celebration! We loved sharing all that Women for UMass has accomplished, and we were so honored to host such an interesting and inspiring fireside chat with Chancellor Subbaswamy and alumna Karen Kaplan ’81. For those of you unable to attend, the chancellor and Kaplan discussed her UMass beginnings; the path that led her to become CEO of Hill Holliday (and ranked as one of the most influential women in advertising); and how she is using her position to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. We also got to hear from steering committee member Wystan Carswell ’12MS, ’15PhD, who shared her own story of receiving a WFUM grant. You can watch the full video here.
