The Center for the Advancement of Women at Mount Saint Mary’s University is a hub for gender equity research, advocacy and leadership development. Its vision is to find solutions to persistent gender inequities and work with partners to eradicate those inequities in our lifetime. That goal includes eliminating obstacles that women face in the workplace, in their communities, in the media and beyond to make a positive difference in the lives of women and girls in California and our nation. The Center also creates public programming, research guides and training opportunities to engage more partners in its work.
The Center recently launched “The Women's Professional Conference Experience & Impact Study,” which seeks to understand women's experiences at professional conferences and how these learning and development events impact women's career trajectories.
Mount alums can partner and learn from The Center for the Advancement of Women through various events throughout the year including The Report on the Status of Women and Girls in Californiatm, Ready to Run, and the Women’s Leadership Conference.
