These women and their identities have been traditionally excluded from historical narratives. By putting their names on the most prominent building on campus, the Butler Banner Project aims to bring their works and legacies the recognition they deserve. But they’re not the only ones who have been left out of history. Who would you put on your banner? And what if it wasn’t a banner, but something else entirely? Come to this interactive and inspiring wrap up of the Butler Banner Project. We’ll use design thinking, a creative problem-solving methodology, to think about how each of us can personally ensure that women aren’t forgotten. You’ll come out of this workshop with an understanding of the design thinking framework, a repeatable tool for generating ideas, and an action plan for bringing your vision for representation to life. Lunch is provided, and space is limited, so register now! REGISTER HERE Led by Sarah Judd Welch and Allie Mahler of the innovation agency Sharehold, and brought to you by the Athena Center.
