3.1 Dislecksia: The Movie – Norfolk – February 25

St. Patrick’s Catholic School
Norfolk, Virginia

Saturday, February 25, 2017, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Cost: This is a free event, open to the public; pre-registration is required.

Dislecksia: The Movie is a documentary that weaves vintage classroom footage, celebrity interviews, and the comedic touch of dyslexic director Harvey Hubbell V into an engrossing film on a serious subject. In the first film to discuss dyslexia as a learning difference, not a learning disability, Hubbell rallies a team of neuroscientists, educators, celebrities, and business leaders with dyslexia who are advocates of Harvey’s beliefs.

Attendees are invited to stay after the movie for a question and answer panel discussion. The panel consists of the CEO and president of Sinkinson Dyslexia Foundation, Marie Secton, M.Ed., individuals that have been directly affected by dyslexia, and local professionals.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for refreshments; the movie begins at 6:30 p.m. The movie is 83 minutes long.

Randolph-Macon College
Birdsong Hall Pavilion
Ashland, Virginia

Tuesday, July 13 through Friday, July 16, 2017. This application-only leadership program is open to young women between the ages of 16 and 25 years who are enrolled at a U.S. college or university for the 2017-2018 academic year or awaiting acceptance decisions from a U.S. college or university. A select number of students will be admitted; priority consideration will be given to applications received by March 1, 2017.

Network of Enlightened Women (NeW) is accepting applications for its third annual Young Women’s Leadership Retreat. The retreat prepares and inspires young women to be effective leaders in the cultural and political climate on campus. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from a wide range of guest speakers and network with NeW alumnae, mentors, and peers. Sessions will address issues like equal pay, health care, and conservative activism. Additionally, students will participate in public speaking and debate workshops, and learn to develop their networking and interviewing skills.

The Young Women’s Leadership Retreat offers two tracks: one for rising college freshmen, and another for upperclassmen (sophomores through seniors). Both tracks include tailored workshops to meet the distinct challenges each group experiences on campus. The two tracks merge at points during the retreat for panel discussions, leadership training, and team building events.
