UWN, at its core, is a networking organization. We effectively network with all University women, welcoming women from different types of backgrounds and levels of experience. We achieve this by hosting monthly events throughout the academic year so that there are many opportunities to participate, to create and maintain relationships, and also by committing ourselves to the outreach of new members.
Education and Development
UWN is dedicated to educating and sharing information about women’s health and wellness, finances, workplace conflict resolution, programs and benefits at the University, as well as local arts and cultural offerings. We do this through the invited guest speakers that conduct presentations at our monthly luncheons.
Support and Encouragement
UWN values each member and her unique contributions to the organization. Collectively we understand that being a UWN member means making a commitment to each other, to support one another as we strive towards our professional and personal goals. We achieve this by informal information sharing of workplace experiences, job referrals and references, and resource sharing.
