For more than three decades, Dr. Kopenhaver has been a tireless advocate for women in Communication. She has pledged $750,000 and this month made a payment of $25,000 towards that pledge to The Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in Communication. This donation supports the Kopenhaver Center’s mission of empowering women professionals and academics in the field. These funds contribute to the many programs and services that are designed specifically for women in Communication.
The Center also hosts an annual conference. This year’s national conference is titled“Women in Communication: Breaking the Barriers.” This event will take place at FIU’s Biscayne Bay Campus on April 20, 2017. To learn more, please visit http://carta.fiu.edu/kopenhavercenter.
