The Kent State University Women’s Center is here to support you, whether you’re a student, faculty member and staff member through advocacy and education about women, gender, and diversity. The Center offers resources that address matters of particular concern to you by providing education, information and referral programs and services.
HERstory in the Making
This event will spotlight current Kent State student leaders who are doing the work to create positive change in our community. We will discuss activism, and ways to make a difference.
Free Herstory in the Making shirts will be given to the first 40 people who join this Zoom event.
Inspired by the Shirley Chisolm quote, ‘if you don’t have a seat at the table, bring a folding chair,’” we invite you to come together in conversation and community to nourish your souls and feed your passion.
Join us for an exciting intergenerational conversation as we close out our 25th anniversary celebration. We will be honoring those who have paved the way and focusing forward to invest in those who are continuing the journey on the quest for equity and inclusion.
Women's Center 25th Anniversary!
We invite you to join us "At the Table" in celebration of Kent State University Women's Centers 25th Anniversary. Inspired by Shirley Chisholm's quote "If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair" and Indigenous Poet Laureate Joy Harjo's poem "Perhaps the World Ends Here, " we are inspired to "reclaim" the table as a place of gathering and as a place of nourishment. The table is where communities gather, conversations transpire, healing happens and change begins. We are exited to have you join us as we gather across generations, identities and lived experiences to dig into important topics of equity, diversity oppression and hope. This 25 year celebration is about honoring our history and investing in our future and as a part of our 25 year anniversary we are striving to raise $25,000 to support the Women's Center as we continue to work toward a more equitable and inclusive environment for all. Every dollar makes a difference!

- Provide ongoing programming to challenge pay inequity like the AAUW Start Smart Salary Negotiation Workshop.
- Educate and empower our women and other gender marginalized individuals to run for office through the support of our Elect Her program and other women in politics efforts.
