In honor of Women’s History Month (March) and International Women’s Day (March 8), Bay Path University, Springfield Museums, and the Springfield Women’s Commission will present the fourth annual On the Move Forum on Wednesday, March 4, 2020, 5:30 – 7:00 pm at the Springfield Museums, 21 Edwards St, Springfield, MA. This year’s theme, "Generation Equality: “Stand up, Stand Out - RISE” offers attendees an intergenerational, cross-cultural, gender-inclusive conversation focused on women’s rights, civic engagement, career opportunities, and wealth. Now in its fourth year, the forum explores women's history and the advancement of women.
Three women's colleges, Bay Path University, Bryn Mawr College and the College of New Rochelle, were among 24 institutions of higher education to receive Department of Education First in the World Grants in 2014. The First in the World (FITW) Program provides grants to institutions of higher education to spur the development of innovations that improve educational outcomes and make college more affordable for students and families.
