Talk by visiting lecturer Katherine Turk. Katherine Turk specializes in the histories of women, gender and sexuality; law, labor and social movements; and the twentieth century United States. Her first book, Equality on Trial: Gender and Rights in the Modern American Workplace (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2016), examines how sex equality law has remade the world of work, eroding some inequalities and affirming others.  Her current projects include a history of the National Organization for Women, an article on men and masculinity in feminist movements, and, with Leandra Zarnow, a study of the origins and intellectual trajectory of the field of women’s history. The lecture is sponsored by the Department of History.

Annual Susan B. Anthony Legacy Awards Celebration http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1128111 http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1128111 Memorial Art Gallery

The Office of the President will present the University of Rochester’s Frederick Douglass Medal to Constance (Connie) Mitchell who became the first woman and first African-American elected to the Monroe County Board of Supervisors, predecessor to the Monroe County Board Legislature. This historic election made headlines across the country as she then held the highest public office of any African American woman in the United States. In 2017, the Susan B. Anthony Center joins our community as we celebrate the centennial of women’s suffrage in New York State. We cannot think of a more fitting event at which this medal could be presented to a Rochester icon who paved the way for women and racial and ethnic groups to serve in public office.


Keynote: Deborah (Debbie) Farrell 

Ms. Farrell is the Senior Director of Leadership and Development at Harris Rand Lusk, a national, executive search firm dedicated to nonprofit and public service organizations. She has more than 17 years of direct work experience leading fundraising, communications, marketing, and strategy for nonprofit organizations in a diversity of sectors, including the arts, education, human services, disease, advocacy and faith-based programs. Additionally, she regularly consults on corporate and foundation solicitations, major gifts, planned giving, and capital campaign solicitations and her work has won several national social media fundraising competitions.
