Welcome to Pacific's Women’s Resource Center

Women's Center

Pacific Women's Center logoFounded by volunteers in 2006, revamped in 2009, first director appointed in 2010! Look out world!

We are located inside the Multicultural Center on the ground level of the McCaffrey Center. The purpose of the center is to promote awareness of women's and gender issues and celebrate and cultivate women's leadership on campus and beyond. The Women's Resource Center is used for meetings and events, and serves as a resource for gender equality and campus violence prevention.

Message from the Director

Corrie Martin

What's the story behind the numbers? Only 17% of congress, less than 24% of college presidents and 3% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women. Why are women as a whole languishing in middle management and lower levels of leadership? This year, we will be focusing on the issue of women's leadership in our programming and initiatives. Join us for a an exciting year-long initiative promoting women's leadership on campus and beyond (see our Advancing Women's Leadership page for more information!)
