Our mission is to engage and empower diverse leaders.

Current vision statements: 

  • QWN is a self-governed community promoting growth and leadership through a decentralized model 
  • QWN challenges stereotypes and advocates for realized change through the creation of a community where diverse voices are heard and valued
  • QWN creates a welcoming space that forges connections, builds knowledge, and expands spheres of influence among its membership 
  • QWN aims to amplify women’s voices and encourage development of all marginalized groups across campus

We recognize that we have members with a vast array of talents. QWN pursues new projects through the creation of committees. These committees are open for any member to join and are collaborative in nature. This no pressure approach allows members to participate as much or as little as they can manage.

Please check out the committees page to find out more about our group. There is another link on the left hand side of this page about the QWN Mentorship Program.
