Each Spring semester, The Council for Women's Concerns sponsors a Speaker Event related
to women's concerns.
2014 SPRING EVENT
Emergency Planning and Response
The 2014 spring event was titled "Emergency Planning and Response" and was presented
by Ann Burns, Chief of Police at Fredonia and Sally Turner, Ed.D, Director of Counseling
at Fredonia. The workshop addressed Fredonia’s Emergency planning procedures, as well
as what faculty and staff should do in the event of a range of emergency situations.
2013 SPRING EVENT
Fit, Well and Working
The 2013 spring event was "Fit, Well and Working" by Penny Hite, Chair of the Sport
Management & Exercise Science department at Fredonia.
Working women are finding it increasing difficult to "have it all." We want to be
care-givers, responsible mothers, respected partners, as well as productive and consequential
employees. Deadlines, demanding bosses, "mother-guilt" and impossible schedules fill
our working lives, while play-dates, soccer practices, dance and music lessons, taxi-driving,
creative finances, homework, counseling, dinner menus, grocery shopping, spiritual
pursuits, house-keeping, laundry, and – in many cases – the "work" we did not finish
at "work" fill our (so-called) free time. These duties often stand at the fore for
the working woman as she strives to have it all; unfortunately, fitness and wellness
– arguably the most important aspects – are often the last to be considered when creating
a workable blueprint for success. This presentation will focus on helping working
women incorporate fitness, nutrition and wellness into their busy lifestyles, allowing
them to truly have it all.
