AIC to Celebrate Prominent Individuals During Women’s History Month
SPRINGFIELD — Throughout the month of March, American International College (AIC) will use the college’s website and social-media platforms to recognize groundbreaking and influential women who have boldly stepped forward to lead, make new discoveries, and break down barriers.
The diversity of women featured will represent a cross-section of disciplines including medicine, the sciences, humanitarianism and social justice, political and public service, athletics, and the arts and entertainment. Biographical profiles will feature historical women including Massachusetts native and women’s suffrage pioneer Susan B. Anthony to current day voices such as Tarana Burke, who gave the phrase ‘me too’ its strength, as well as young women to watch, like 14-year-old entrepreneur Alissa Chavez from Albuquerque, N.M., who proved everyone can make a difference with her creation of an alarm system that alerts parents when the temperature inside vehicles rises to unsafe levels for children.
Beginning March 1 and each day throughout the month, AIC will celebrate outstanding women who have helped shape their world, often overcoming significant challenges to forge a path and inspire future generations.
