Women's Interests Collaboratives

The Women and Gender Resource Center is home to the collective group Greater Women’s Interests Collaborative (GWIC).

The purpose of the GWIC is to provide a supportive and fortifying space of relationship, dialogue, collaboration, and solidarity for those who advocate on behalf of the diverse interests of women and those who work toward gender equity and parity in educational, social, civic, economic, and political spheres, and to harness our collective energy for progressive change in both the academic and Tucson communities.
