The annual PASSHE Women’s Consortium conference, taking place on Friday, September 29, and Saturday, September 30, 2017, in the IUP Humanities and Social Sciences Building, offers many opportunities to interact with women across the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education.
The theme of this year’s conference is “We Are Stronger Together—Intersectionality in a Diverse World.”
General sessions allow participants to understand what is happening on other campuses, learn about successes and challenges, and strategize about how to effectively advocate for women.
Keynote speakers deliver thought-provoking messages to inspire.
Breakout sessions provide a wide variety of topics, including feminist leadership, self-care, recruitment and retention strategies, and historical and cultural perspectives on issues pertinent to women.
Discussions during meals and break times provide additional opportunities to network with colleagues, reunite with friends, and build ongoing connections across the State System.
The PASSHE Women’s Consortium is the only organization within the Pennsylvania State System that acts on behalf of all women—faculty, staff, administrators, and students. The Consortium’s initiatives include an annual conference dedicated to women’s and
gender issues, and summer leadership institutes for faculty, staff, and undergraduate women.
Membership in the Consortium is open to all genders, race, ethnicity, age, and sexual orientation.
