Joie Zhang, Intern, 2012-13
I have learned more than I thought I would and I love the work I am doing spreading the word about the awesome resources the Women’s Center has to offer students around Grounds. I am so honored to have the opportunity to be a part of helping, supporting, and empowering women in our community.
Erin Ennis, Intern, 2012-13
Interning at the UVa Women’s Center has broadened my knowledge of how social media can be used to promote events and raise awareness. I have learned how to communicate effectively across social media platforms; what works, and what does not.
Kaitlin Mackie, Volunteer
