Women and Gender Leadership Fund
The Women and Leadership Alliance and CMC are excited to launch the Women and Gender Leadership Initiative. This two-part initiative consists of program facilitation and the funding of student proposals focused on student education and engagement around gender and leadership.
The fund invites students of all genders identities to propose projects focused on building awareness and empowering women and other gender identities.

Come and listen to answers from AWS Director Linda Perkins and alumni with AWS backgrounds at “The Next Wave: Effecting Change Through Applied Women’s Studies,” a special conference on October 14 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this pioneering program and how its graduates are changing the world.
