The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) at the University of Utah serves as the central resource for educational and support services for women.  Honoring the complexities of women’s identities, the WRC facilitates choices and changes through programs, counseling, and training grounded in a commitment to advance social justice and equality.


Please join the Women's Resource Center,  Women's Enrollment Initiative, and campus partners as we all come together to help others.

Women's Leadership Summit - Call for Proposals

WLS Save the Date

 The theme this year is:    (Im)perfect, on purpose

The tyranny of perfection. From cradle to grave, women all over the globe internalize this unachievable notion with each country, community, religion, or social conventions putting its own special sauce into the mix. Perfect girls, perfect looks, perfect skin tone, complexion, or perfect hair. Perfect thoughts, notions, whims and desires. Oftentimes the ‘perfections’ are in direct conflict with each other: coy yet accessible, nurturing yet independent, complex but upbeat, self-assertive yet self-deprecating, direct yet yielding; modest in our intelligence and creativity. However, these imperfections or ‘deviations’ are exactly the qualities we need to move forward and do the work that is necessary for each of us to live in our purpose.

Each of us will hear and address the theme of (Im)Perfect, On Purpose. What is your point of view? 

We hope to have a diverse representation of the theme and a multitude of topics.  We encourage any and all who would like to participate.
