Gender Equity

  • The ACE Women’s Network facilitates the networking of women interested in pursuing leadership opportunities in higher education. A four-part structure—Women’s National Executive Council (WNEC), state-based networks, presidential sponsors, and institutional representatives—facilitates these connections, allows for the sharing of best practices, particularly at the State Coordinators’ Annual Conference, and enables local leadership training by the state networks. The ACE Women’s Network draws from the resources of ACE’s Inclusive Excellence Group and provides a means for implementing a set of core principles in supporting women leaders in higher education.
