Jessica Jennrich, director of CWGE and social justice project
specialist, said Bolden's historic appointment as the first Black
woman on the state supreme court made her a great choice to deliver remarks.
"We thought she was the perfect fit for the 2023 Women’s History
Month theme, 'Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,'" Jennrich
said. "The Center for Women and Gender Equity likes to feature
speakers during this event who expand our understanding of gender
justice and women’s impact in society."
President Philomena V. Mantella and Faith Kidd, president of Student
Senate, will also speak.
Bolden earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from Grand Valley in
2010 and later a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Detroit
Mercy School of Law. She was elected to the state legislature in 2018,
representing Michigan's 35th House District.
