Check out our preliminary Fall calendar! We are firming up some of the details yet but we have another great semester planned. Also, don't forget about our weekly events, such as our wellness program, and our support/discussion groups (including women's empowerment for female staff and faculty at UW Oshkosh, a domestic violence/intimate partner violence support group for female UW Oshkosh students, and a biweekly discussion group with female veterans on the Oshkosh campus and in the community).
The Women's Center hosts Brown Bag Lunches organized by Women's and Gender Studies. These sessions are aimed at promoting a dialogue about women's and gender issues in the workplace, campus, and life in general.
Join us several times throughout the term for our film series! Why a film series? In accordance with the Women's Center mission and vision, and in the context of the campus-wide focus on Liberal Education, our film series is designed to improve the intellectual and practical skills of our participants and to emphasize our responsibility as individuals to engage in active and integrated learning.

Learning how to effectively negotiate a salary is one way to combat the wage gap. Not sure what "wage gap" is? It's the oft-cited statistic that women make 77 cents to a man's dollar. But it's more complicated than that. Race, ethnicity, and gender are all a factor, with Hispanic women facing the largest pay gap.
