HERstory of the Conference:
The Women’s Center received a 2017-2018 Campus Action Project grant from the American Association of University Women to launch a project titled “Titan LeadHERship: Inspiration to Action.” The premise of the grant was to work towards closing the gender leadership gap in “pink collar” fields. Research shows that while the workforce is dominated by women, leadership roles within these fields continue to be held by men. In addition to a photo exhibit of Titan LeadHERs from across campus, the grant and additional support from Reeve Union and AAUW-Oshkosh also funded a day-long workshop. Workshop content included a welcome from Chancellor Leavitt and Vice Chancellor Green, breakout sessions with local female-identified leaders in pink collar industries, networking strategies, panel of past National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) attendees, inclusive leadership, professional communication, and LeadHERship goal setting.

The Titan LeadHERship Conference continued in 2019 and 2020. In 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we hosted a month long online Titan LeadHERship Development Program. We went back to an in person format in 2022 and renamed the conference from Titan LeadHERship to Womxn Leading UWO in an effort to be more inclusive of all three UWO campuses and of women who have too often been marginalized within women’s programs. We are excited to continue the conference in 2023.
