Conference | "The Next Wave: Effecting Change Through AWS"

Aws conference


Join us for “The Next Wave,” a conference to celebrate the pioneering work and impact of Applied Women’s Studies!


What kinds of social change and careers are possible for Applied Women’s Studies students at Claremont Graduate University?

Come and listen to answers from AWS Director Linda Perkins and alumni with AWS backgrounds at “The Next Wave: Effecting Change Through Applied Women’s Studies,” a special conference on October 14 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this pioneering program and how its graduates are changing the world.

Please RSVP to reserve your place. We hope to see you there! Lunch will be provided for all registered attendees.

The day’s program features keynote remarks by leadership expert, alumna, and AWS mentor Dr. Sarah Smith Orr and the story of the program’s creation from its first director, Jean Schroedel. The conference includes several alumni panel discussions on how internships and an interdisciplinary approach have positioned them for careers in politics, policy, activism, the non-profit and for-profit sectors, education, as parents, and much more.

Your voices are important to this event. The conference begins at 8:30 a.m. with coffee and informal conversation and concludes with a networking reception at the university’s President’s house: we want you to have chances to share your experiences and questions with each other and our conference participants.
