Are you a woman-identifying student in Business or STEM (science, tech, engineering, math) looking to build connections and community at UIC? The Women’s Leadership and Resource Center invites you to join our new Affinity Group!

We’ll start this month’s gathering by recognizing the women STEM & business leaders who have paved the way for us. Then we’ll let the conversation flow wherever it takes us!

  • Open to UIC undergraduate, graduate, and professional students who identify as women and are majoring or interested in STEM and business fields

WLRC’s Affinity Groups provide students who share an identity or professional interest space to gather, discuss shared experiences, support each other through challenges, and affirm and celebrate their communities. Each group meets once a month and is facilitated by WLRC staff.

We recognize that these groups encompass broad populations that will have some shared experiences as well as many varied and unique cultures and histories. Our goal is to create spaces for us to celebrate these differences while building solidarity and support for each other. We will consider creating additional groups in the future based on the needs and interests of our participants.

Accessibility info:

  • We ask that everyone wear a mask to protect our community's health and safety.
  • Snacks will be available for takeaway at the end of the program.
  • Building and suite accessibility info is available on our website.

Please contact us with any questions or access requests: or (312) 413-1025.

Hosted as part of WLRC's celebration of Women's History Month.
