Making a difference for women


March 30, 2011

How is ASU making a difference for women? Find out the answer to this question and share some ice cream with the organizations that are making a difference on April 6.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. that day, on Hayden Lawn, the Women’s Collaborative Partners (WCP) will showcase all the ways that ASU is committed to fostering the success of women.

Participants in “Making a Difference for Women” will include Association for Women in Science, Campus Environment Team, Employee Assistance Office, Family Resources, University Career Women, Women as Hero, Commission on the Status of Women and many more.

WCP was formed in spring 2010 “when we realized that a lot of organizations were doing the same thing,” said Rosalind Conerly, coordinator, who works for the Office of Institutional Inclusion.

“We wanted to try to aid those organizations and reach a larger audience with all of our programming.”

The Office of Institutional Inclusion is a unit within the Provost’s Office and it partners with ASU faculty, staff and student organizations and units across the university to promote and advance women.

To date, 20 organizations have affiliated with WCP, Conerly said. The benefits include:

• Collaboration on future programming with other organizations and units that may have more notoriety or funding, which creates an opportunity for programming to reach a larger audience;

• The ability to bounce ideas off of other organizations when planning programming;

• Assistance with marketing programs across the different campuses.
