Women’s Leadership Events

Connect, Learn, and Network

By coming together, we can expand our presence in the University community, build new relationships, and do more for URI women. The Council is always looking for ways to convene and share our ideas, experiences, and perspectives. You can learn about some of more most successful events below, and be sure there will be more to come in the future. View our photo gallery from past events.
