We offer women resources and advice to help guide them in their career development and in the workplace.

We recognize, respect, and integrate students’ diverse backgrounds, identities, experiences, and perspectives into quality career development and planning. Our events, resources, and opportunities are designed to ensure that all students have equal access, regardless of culture, national origin, race/ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation/identity, and gender/gender expression. Students who identify with particular groups can have unique challenges when choosing a major or career, interviewing for positions, and transitioning into the work world.

In addition to the resources below, career counselors/advisors are available to answer questions and provide guidance.

If you are going into the government or politics you must be willing to be pushed past your limits. This will only make you a better person and teach you that you are stronger than you think and wiser than you know. ”
