Club - Interdisciplinary Women’s Council

The Northeastern University Interdisciplinary Women’s Council, or the IWC for short, is the first body on the Northeastern campus that seeks to bring together women and women’s organizations on campus to facilitate the communication and promotion of women’s empowerment initiatives and events on campus. The council, at its core, is a means for individuals and clubs on campus to be exposed to the resources, the knowledge, the events, and the practices that have helped propel some of the campus’s largest women’s organizations to the success we see from them today. Too often, the biggest barrier to female empowerment is the lack of communication between women and this council wants to change that. We believe that every organization on campus that has shown their commitment to gender equality should have the ability to know how to succeed as a club at Northeastern and the best way to do that is to learn from clubs who have already done it. The council will be the primary body from which the university hosts campus-wide, interdisciplinary women’s events such as an annual International Women’s Day Celebration.
