Women’s Empowerment

(Photos taken from agnesscott.edu; slideshow recreated by Destiny Dickens with Cincopa)

This slide show above was at the top of the Agnes Scott College’s “The Greatness Before Us” campaign. As you can see in the photos, there are three women in each one, with a different quote on the slide. The one reoccurring thing on each photo is the appearance of the words “Great Women”. This repetition puts emphasis on the empowerment of women. Even at the the bottom of the page there is the quote, ” Great Women will lead us forward”. The women in each photo are all diverse with different races and even age differences. This shows their students that they are all “Great Women” regardless of their race or cultural background. The three photos represent the past, present, and future of Agnes Scott. Each group taking the role of leaders, during different times on the timeline, as seen with the dates going across the tops of each photo.

On this page there is a tab on the menu labeled “student excellence”. On this page they trying to raise money support students with scholarships and funding study abroad trips. Also on this page, there is the quote, “smart women set the world on fire”. This is a form of empowerment to their students to pursue their degree and it encourages them to become leaders of the world.

Who Attends ASC?:

When you go to the Admissions page there is an option on the side bar labeled, “High School Students”. When you click on it, you will go to a page with information for applicants in high school. on the right side of the page there is a link that says “view stats and numbers from our most recent class”.  This links to a PDF page with the student demographics. According to this document, “students come from 9 countries and 32 U.S. states and territories.

Also, 61% are students of color and 9% are international. This shows a large amount of diversity in the student body. The fact that access to this information is promoted on the page for prospective students, implies that this type of diversity is encouraged at Agnes Scott College.

Diverse Cultural Exposure:
On the home page, in the slide show, there is picture that links to information about “global learning”.  This slide show is the first thing that is visible when logging onto the site. This marks its significance and the photos in the slide show must be important as well. This makes me assume that the global learning program is important to Agnes Scott. There is also a page on the website with information about the Center for Global Diversity and Inclusion. The page links to multiple pages, located in the sidebar, for more information about the different programs that are provided there and some of the policies at the college created to encourage diversity. This is an example of Agnes Scott’s promotion of diversity in race, culture, gender, sexual orientation, and religion, through its website.
