When & Where
Women's Leadership Conference (WLC)
WLC is a conference aimed at graduate students at Rutgers University who are looking for a space to discuss our challenges and successes as professional women about to begin or return to our careers after graduate school.
The mission and goal of the conference is to highlight our strengths and acquire new strategies that will propel us forward in our future endeavors. In addition, the objective of the Organizing Committee is to equip attendees with leadership skills as well as the ability to find balance in the various roles we will all play in society. The conference allows students to learn from women have once been in their shoes and can share their wisdom and lessons. The conference is open to all graduate women at Rutgers.
