No book has existed, until now,  to help women cope with the emotional and practical aftermath of being fired, a difficult, painful experience that can be so hard to cope with alone. 

In response, coauthors Julia Erickson, MBA, '80, executive and career coach, and scientific writer Suzanne Vosburg, PhD, wrote Betrayed by Work: Women's Stories of Trauma, Healing and Hope After  Being Fired - a collection of women's stories about trauma and recovery from being fired and their recommendations for more compassionate ways to end employment.

Do you know that many have charted the evolution of the modern carceral system beginning with its roots in slavery, officially ended 150 years ago, and connect the movement to abolish slavery in our historical past with today's movement to abolish prisons?       

By centering the voices of currently and formerly incarcerated people through poetry, Meredith Nnoka '14, carceral justice advocate and published poet, commemorates (celebrates) Juneteenth, with a virtual talk that outlines the history of mass incarceration and the current national debate around criminal justice reform in the U.S.
