It Starts With Me: Nov 3, 2016

We hope you are able to join us for the third session of  “It Starts With Me: Conversations about Identity, Privilege and Intersectionality.” 

We will be in the Wingra Clinic Bay Creek Conference Room, Nov 3, 2016 (12:30 – 1:30PM), but again we will have video conferencing available.  Please let Ann Schensky know as soon as possible if you would like your site to participate so we can set it up.
