The University Committee for the Advancement of Women and Gender Equity (UCAWGE) is charged by the Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion with the collection of quantitative and qualitative data on the experiences of women at ISU. To gather qualitative data, we invited women in the ISU community to share their stories highlighting individual experiences. Participants were asked the following questions:
- What was your personal and/or professional journey like that led you to Iowa State University?
- What resources or support would help you thrive as a woman at Iowa State University?
Our goal in doing this is to amplify the voices of women in the ISU community through the sharing of lived experiences. We hope that these stories will bring into focus the people behind the numbers.
