Advancing Gender Equity and Inclusion
The Women's Center is committed to advancing women, gender equity, and inclusion through engaging the Northwestern University community. As catalysts for change, we foster the development of individual and collective strengths to cultivate socially responsible students, staff, and faculty.
We are unwavering in our resolve that diversity at Northwestern means far more than disparate groups sharing common space. We celebrate and support a new and fully inclusive mainstream and believe that our diversity – in the fullest meaning of that word – enriches all areas of the community. Our vibrancy and vitality derive directly from the breadth and talent, training, and life experience found among our staff, faculty, students, and alumni.
The Northwestern Women's Center has existed in its current form since 1986. View our interactive timeline and video that highlight's out center's accomplishments.
