Kate Dunwoody Luncheon raises scholarship dollars

Annual event will be held Nov. 16

This November, Dunwoody College of Technology will once again bring people together to celebrate, inspire, and promote actions that advance women’s representation in technology and skilled trades careers. The annual Kate Dunwoody Society Luncheon will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, November 16, at the Metropolitan Ballroom and Clubroom in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The event, which is held during National Scholarship Month, celebrates and supports the extraordinary women who are inspiring others to pursue their own paths to success.

Tickets for the event are still available and funds raised from the luncheon will support scholarships needed to help remove financial barriers for women students at Dunwoody College.

This year’s luncheon will feature keynote speaker, Kate Agnew, VP Engineering at Kyros and recent Minneapolis/Saint Paul Business Journal ’40 Under 40’ honoree. Agnew will share her story, her experiences, and how she used adversity as a force for change for the better. Scholarships and mentoring programs gave Agnew the strength and confidence to craft a fulfilling career in addition to finding unique ways to give back to our community.

The program will also include a message from a current Kate Dunwoody Scholarship recipient, who will share what the scholarship has meant to her.
