Outside the Classroom

Learning happens outside the classroom with many special programs and events supporting women's leadership and gender equity.

Chatham University offers a wide variety of activities outside the classroom for graduate and undergraduate students interested in women's leadership and gender equity, including places to live, scholarships, clubs, special events, lectures, films, retreats, and so much more!

Leadership Skills Development

In collaboration with the Women's Institute and Diversity Dialogues, the Office of Career Development offers a "Diversity in Career" series, with programs on:

  • Dress for success for gender non-conforming students
  • Salary negotiation strategies
  • LGBTQIA+ in the workplace
  • Discrimination in the workplace

Career Development also offers a free "professional dress closet" that ensures that all women have access to clothing for interviews and networking events, and office attire.

Develop your leadership skills through dozens of student organizations, including these focused on women and gender:

  • Enhance your leadership skills through participation in athletics. Learn more »
