Thank-A-Giver Day (TAG Day) is on Monday, February 11. This day provides the IWU campus community with the opportunity to thank the donors who support Illinois Wesleyan. IWU celebrates each year in mid-February because it marks the symbolic point during the academic year – about 70% of the way through – when tuition dollars run out and support from alumni and friends, our endowment, and external grants kicks in for the remainder of the year.

Thank you to all donors who help make the IWU experience possible!

Danielle (Blomarz) Kays ’01 of the law firm Seyfarth Shaw was among many of the organizers of a summit on employment law. Kays who often represents employers, said the worldwide #MeToo movement “has made these claims public and it’s important to talk about these issues.” This movement and similar issues were topics that the McLean County Bar Association, Chamber of Commerce and the Bloomington-Normal Human Resource Council explored at a summit on Tuesday, April 17th, along with other employment law issues.

The conference was the first effort of its kind to bring together attorneys, business owners and human resource professionals to examine this evolving area of the law.

Here is a link to the full article: http://wglt.org/post/sexual-harassment-other-workplace-issues-are-focus-employment-law-summit#stream/0

Thank you for all you do, Danielle!
