Hampton University's Honors Council Preps Students for Life
11/28/2016 - #106
Hampton, Va. – On November 30th, Hampton University’s Freddye T. Davy Honors College is preparing to inspire students to consider entrepreneurship as well as sharing additional tools for success after graduation.
At 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. in McGrew Conference Center, HU alumnus and entrepreneur Charlotte Avery will host a workshop about her new book, “40 Day Tone of Voice Tone Down.”
The book focuses on relationships and how they can be strengthened by word choice and tone of voice.
As a mother of 7 and an educated businesswoman, Avery has debunked the myth that “women can’t have it all.”
“I don’t want students to think that the joys of motherhood cannot coincide with their professional aspirations. Motherhood doesn’t have to be for ‘other people;” it is a viable
option for them. Most importantly, I want to present students with healthy role models and Charlotte is one,” said Dr. Sabin Duncan, Director of the Freddye T. Davy Honors College.
While the workshop will be beneficial for young ladies, young men are encouraged to attend as well.
“This will add another layer for how young men view women,” said Dr. Duncan.
In addition to the workshop, students will have the opportunity to attend the Alumni Roundtable at 6:30 pm in the Student Center Ballroom.
The forum will consist of seven alumni that include women like Avery as well as DeShawn Robinson-Chew, founder of ShEO, an organization dedicated to developing young girls into leaders.
While the events are open to all students, HU scholarship recipients are required to attend one of the events.
