Events & Projects
We invite everyone to recognize and make public the efforts of William & Mary employees. Give Them Credit is a virtual place for us to give credit to those who make William & Mary operate so successfully everyday, even during and despite of a global pandemic! When someone gives you credit, share that comment with your supervisor--they need to know that others appreciate you. Let's lift each other up! Recognize another woman's efforts at Give Them Credit!
