Networking and a Movie on Jan. 26

Join the University of Mary Washington’s Leadership Colloquium @ UMW Team for a networking event on Thursday, Jan. 26, 2017.

Participants will meet at the Park Lane Tavern of Fredericksburg at Spotsylvania Towne Centre at 5:30 p.m. for appetizers, a cash bar and plenty of networking. Then head over to Paragon Village 12 to purchase tickets to Hidden Figures. This film tells the incredible story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, all brilliant African-American women who crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. The trio, who worked at NASA, was the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. The historic achievement restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.

The cost for networking is $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Participants may purchase movie tickets individually on-site. Pre-register at www.umw.edu/lcpw/quarterly-networking-events/.
