To mark the occasion of International Women’s Day, the Office of International Education (OIE) at Indiana University of Pennsylvania is sponsoring the first International Women’s Day Symposium on Monday, March 23, 2015, in the HUB’s Ohio Room.
In this year’s symposium, we offer a unique forum for all IUP students to network and present their research projects on any topic related to women around the world. Potential topics include women’s accomplishments, historical perspectives, cultural perspectives, challenges, etc. In addition to poster presentations, the symposium will provide rich and varied opportunities for attendees, including networking and participating in a guest speakers’ session.
The poster session is open to all IUP students. While there will be time dedicated to meet and greet during the poster session portion of the symposium, the information contained on each poster should speak for itself. We will be hosting a Six O’Clock Series in the evening, and posters will be on display before and after the event from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m. and from 7:30 to 8:00 p.m.
This forum provides participants with an opportunity to visually present research and project storyboards on women’s issues while engaging in discussions about matters related to women. Special care will be taken to ensure that a variety of topics and a broad geographical/cultural range are represented in this symposium.
Please submit a poster presentation abstract of 200 words that clearly describes your poster no later than March 6, 2015. Please include your name, Banner ID, your major, and your poster’s title. Submit your abstract via e-mail to the Office of International Education at firstname.lastname@example.org.

An award will be given to the best poster, as judged by attendees during the symposium.
