Important Update regarding the Women's Heritage Month Seminar:

Dear WPI Community members,

The university has been following the guidance of local, regional, and national authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S. State Department, and the Massachusetts Governor’s office as the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues worldwide.

In order to do our part to protect the WPI community and support containment efforts, we have decided to cancel all Talent and Inclusion D Term Programming. Information regarding virtual events will be forthcoming as we are actively exploring ways to leverage online tools and resources to ensure that we remain founder friendly and support community engagement.

WPI is monitoring this dynamic global situation, and we hope to resume in-person events in the future. We will keep you informed!

Thank you in advance for your understanding.


Talent and Inclusion Team

During the reception, Period @ WPI and the OMA will be collecting feminine hygiene product donations for local Worcester women’s shelters.
