Marietta College is pleased to welcome Dr. Anita P. Jackson, Emeritus Professor at Kent State University, for a virtual presentation on her book, "Achieving Against the Odds: African American Professional Women in Higher Education," from 12:00-1:00 p.m., Thursday, March 25th. The event will take place on Zoom​.

Women professionals in the university setting find many rewards, meaningful purposes and fulfillments. Nevertheless, they experience numerous challenges that jeopardize their career progress. Jackson's presentation will share both the joys and the challenges of these professionals as they relate to women and particularly Black women. Jackson is also a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Supervisor. Her research interests and publications include HIV/AIDS prevention, stress, multicultural counseling, women’s issues, and African American history and development.
