We are a staff member organization whose primary focus is to provide resources and support to women staff members at UCSB. Our programming and offerings are all-inclusive and open to everyone affiliated with the campus as well as members of our community seeking greater involvement. We welcome you to join us at our upcoming events and community service opportunities!

We strive to develop campus-wide awareness of the contributions of women at UCSB through programming, professional development, and community service events. PWA serves as a networking and communications channel among women and is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other women across campus through quarterly meetings and socials.
