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.
