Join us as Three Rivers Community College (TRCC) hosts the Second Annual Professional Women’s Leadership Forum on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in TRCC’s Multipurpose Room.

The evening begins by recognizing thirteen women leaders in our community, including Dr. Mary Ellen Jukoski, President of Three Rivers Community College, local business owners, students from the College, and more. See the full list below.
After the award ceremony, panelists will discuss the obstacles women face as they strive to attain elevated positions in politics, business and higher education, as well as explore strategies and solutions that will help us a society move forward.
Panelists include Laurelle Texidor, Director of the Science and Technology Magnet High School; Deirdre Sebastian, ConnCAS Counselor at TRCC; Bridney Casillas, TRCC student; Arieanna Ramos, TRCC student; and Lee-Ann Gomes, Norwich Human Resources.
