Conference Planning Committee

Athena and the UI Women’s Center join together with other members of the University of Idaho and Washington State University campus communities to plan the 2012 Women’s Leadership Conference (WLC). Organizing and planning for such a significant event requires the work of many, and individuals who are interested in assisting in this collaborative process are warmly encouraged to join us. We know there are folks with valuable skills who are dedicated to women’s professional development and leadership, and could contribute to this planning process.

Planning meetings are held monthly throughout the spring semester and summer. If you are interested in serving on the committee, please email
