PLU Women's Center
Everyone is Welcome at the Women's Center
The mission of PLU’s Women’s Center is to empower women and their allies to become advocates for gender equity and social justice. We accomplish this through education, mentoring, outreach, and celebration as well as by fostering a safe space and inclusive communities.
Create a community that collectively champions gender equity and social justice; promotes respect for all; and where individuals feel supported and empowered to pursue their intellectual, professional, and personal goals.
Diversity: Celebrate differences as a source of strength while understanding that privilege and oppression shape each person’s experience of the world. Consciously wrestling with the complex intersections of our identities is necessary for change.
Community: We are stronger together than separate.
Engaged Inquiry: Questioning and curiosity fosters multiple perspectives, awareness, self-reflection, and growth.
Activism: Act strategically with courage and conviction.
Advocacy: Compassionate service and care inspires hope and healing.
Sustainability: Bolster the capacity for social and cultural change.
Gender Equity: Strive for a world where every person is treated with fairness and justice, regardless of gender identity and expression.
Leadership: Be a responsible catalyst for social justice through authentic collaboration, innovation, humility and care.
