  • Inspire women students to assume positions of leadership and to celebrate their individual and collective achievements
  • Nurture female student leaders by encouraging and demonstrating critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and problem-solving strategies
  • Foster a deeper awareness of the many roles women play and their contributions to society

The program is limited to 10-12 female students who will participate in sessions, both with RGS mentors and separately with scholars. Through monthly luncheons and guided conversations with community mentors, the Ruth G. Shaw Women’s Leadership Program offers:

  • Interaction with college leaders, faculty, staff, and alumnae
  • Personal and professional skill development
  • Hands-on leadership development
  • Recognition of achievement. As a culminating event and in collaboration with faculty, staff, and mentors, participants will plan and execute an annual spring capstone presentation about their experience in the program.

Applicants for the program must plan to be enrolled for the entirety of the 2019-2020 academic year. Questions? Contact Amanda Capobianchi or Anita McGill.

Applications are now available for students who are interested in this special experience and are due by Friday, April 26.

Andrea Vail’s “Bridging” Visits Central Piedmont March 15 – April 11

Bridging by Andea Vail

Andrea Vail, “Bridging,” 2019
CPCC student, faculty, and staff-sourced images, hand-made tassels, dye-sublimation print on microfiber
26″ x 900″
On view March 15 – May 2, 2019, Overcash Lobby

Artist Lecture: April 11, 12:30 p.m. in Overcash Building, Tate Hall, Second Floor
Opening Reception: April 11, 7- 8 p.m. Overcash Lobby

Andrea Vail is the featured visual artist for Sensoria 2019! Throughout Spring 2019, Vail facilitated “Bridging,” a multi-campus, collaborative, and large-scale fabric project culminating in its installation in the Overcash Lobby for Sensoria. “Bridging” is a tangible representation of Central Piedmont’s diverse community: coming from unique experiences, converging at Central Piedmont Community College, then venturing onward. Rooted in the intercultural and generational traditions of patterned textiles, this work, embellished with palm-sized tassels and printed with student-sourced imagery, is both inclusive of individual identities and realized as one unified fabric.

Thank you to Red Heart and Decor Print.

The Career Fair is One Week Away!

It’s official!

We are one week away from the college’s largest recruiting event… THE CAREER FAIR!

This event is happening Thursday, March 7th in Worrell Gym from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. and we want YOU to be ready for the employers as much as they are ready to meet you!

Career Services wants to remind you of 3 keys to making your Career Fair experience awesome:

Dress for Success – Your first impressions are everything, so dress in your very best to let employers know you are serious about your employment. Make sure your hair, nails, breath, and clothes are presentable.

Résumé – Have your professional résumé ready for employers to see your academic accomplishments and relevant work experiences. Employers are looking for a well-rounded student who can both contribute in a team environment and work independently.

Elevator Pitch – You have 30 to 45 seconds to prove to a recruiter that YOU ARE THE BEST FIT! How do you do this? Practice sharing your name, major, relevant experience, and what stands out about you!

Check out the trailer to see how this event will work and we will see you there next week!
