Diversity and Inclusion - Women in Pearls

Women in Pearls Empowerment Dinner




Dear Supporters,

We regret to inform you that this year’s Women in Pearls Empowerment Dinner has been cancelled, due to precautions in response to the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We learn more each day, and feel it is prudent to make decisions to ensure the safety of our community.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to next year’s event. Dr. Walter Wendler, president and CEO of West Texas A&M University, has implored faculty and staff to proceed cautiously pertaining to future events with the intention to keep the best interest of students, faculty, staff and the community. Although students, faculty and staff have been encouraged not to travel during Spring Break, there is no way for this to be guaranteed. With that in mind, we cannot in good conscience continue with this event, which is immediately after Spring Break.

We are issuing full refunds, and you’ll receive an email within the next few days to confirm how your refund has been issued. Depending on the speaker’s availability, we are looking to hold Women of Pearls on Monday, Sept. 21.

For questions, please contact us at the Office for Diversity and Inclusion at West Texas A&M University at (806) 651-8482 or aallen@wtamu.edu.
