The Women’s and Gender Studies Program is advised by a Community Advisory Board. Our Community Advisory Board is comprised of accomplished community leaders with an interest in women’s and gender issues. These board members work closely with the Women’s and Gender Studies Program to ensure our relevance to the local community. The Community Advisory Board helps the Women’s and Gender Studies Program refine and improve our service commitments and opportunities related to the well-being of our community. It also helps publicize our programming in the Charlotte area community.
