Nearly 52 percent of University of Iowa graduates are women, and so many of them are trailblazers in their fields. They are mentors, innovators, and inspiring leaders who are making a difference in their communities, the nation, and the world.

The Iowa Women’s Leadership Network will offer enriching experiences for alumnae and other women affiliated with the UI. This group will support members’ personal and professional growth by fostering relationships and providing leadership opportunities, education, mentoring, and networking.

What We Do

Through events and online communities, including Facebook and LinkedIn, the Iowa Women’s Leadership Network will maintain a lively presence that will foster strong personal and professional connections. The group will promote personal and professional growth and celebrate achievements and successes while also fostering future generations and providing opportunities for women to share ideas and inspire one another.

The Iowa Women’s Leadership Network serves to:

  • Create opportunities to engage alumni, faculty, and staff
  • Support the strategic goals of the University of Iowa and the University of Iowa Center for Advancement
  • Promote alumni engagement through social, educational, and philanthropic initiatives and programs
  • Encourage its members to give of their time, talents, and resources on behalf of the group
  • Be exemplars of ideal engagement for our constituents and current female students
