2021-22 UCW Events Calendar

This year we are planning events and activities at multiple locations (and on Zoom) to meet you where you work!

Save a Seat for a Sister is coming to you! It takes working together and supporting one another to assure women get the opportunity to shine in their fields. Plan to attend one of these events near you. And don’t forget to block your calendar for our annual conference, scheduled Dec. 3rd! We have a new venue this year, Ability360 Center, and plenty to aid in your professional and personal development!

UCW Annual Conference – POSTPONED TILL SPRING SEMESTER. CHECK BACK LATER FOR OUR NEW DATE! at Ability360 Center and via Zoom. Our theme this year is Turning the Corner: Looking Forward. Whether we have put the past year behind us or not we know that the only way to move is forward. Together we will explore topics that help you set your path for new accomplishments and for opportunities on the horizon.

The conference will be hybrid this year, with options to attend via Zoom or in person at Phoenix’s Ability 360 Center. And whether you’re joining us online or in person you’ll be able to attend the wonderful sessions we have planned AND have lunch covered for you by UCW! So be sure to sign up when we have our new spring date and registration is re-opened!

Past Events

September 16th at Tempe UCW Welcome Back Brown Bag S3 lunch event

As with previous Save a Seat for a Sister events, we learned about a topic and then had open discussion. The topic for this event was the 30×30 initiative; a national initiative to advance women in policing and increase female involvement in law enforcement by 30% by the year 2030. And thanks to our own UCW sisters Claudia Salas and Hilda Godinez, who work with the ASU Police Department, we got to learn about this topic from ASU Police Chief Michael Thompson and Recruiter Naimah Saadiq! They had so much information to share, and there was extremely interesting discussion.

September 30th West UCW Fall Lunch event – Every campus has its’ own culture. As such we came to the West Campus to share a meal and find out what are things at your campus you’d like to see UCW supporting or engaged in?

October 13th at Downtown Phoenix UCW Fall Brown Bag lunch event – ASU and the City of Phoenix are integrated in a way that is not duplicated on any other campus location. What are things at your campus you would like to see UCW supporting or engaged in?

November 4th at Poly Technic UCW Mid-Fall Brown Bag lunch event While not your only programs much of Poly is known for engineering and other technical male dominated fields. As such, at this hybrid event we discussed Women enter Male Dominated spaces, and what our own experiences with this in Higher Ed have taught us, and how we can change this in big and small ways.
