Women's Networks

Breaking through the glass ceiling is greatly facilitated when women help other women gain entrance and momentum through the career pipeline. Formal and informal networks are critical for paving the way. NCRW’s Corporate Circle fosters networking among corporate leaders to help them strategize, navigate career paths and develop leadership skills, as well as build new relationships and partnerships across companies and industries. NCRW’s Emerging Leaders Network is another initiative that is reinforcing relationships among young professionals. Our networks can be particularly useful across sectors bringing the latest data, trends and analysis to decision-makers and future leaders.

Lecture by Suad Joseph: Rethinking Arab Women as "Subjects"


Suad Joseph was born in Lebanon and educated in the US. She completed her Ph.D. in Anthropology at Columbia University. Most of her anthropological field research has focused on her native Lebanon. Her early work investigated the politicization of religious sects in Lebanon leading up to the civil war in 1975, questions of ethnicity and state, and local community organization and development. That work led her to consider the impact of women's visiting networks on local and national politics, and the relationships between local communities, community organizations, and the state.

Lecture: 2:00pm

Reception: 4:00-6:00pm

Location: UCLA Faculty Center, California Room

On the front line: Longtime advocate for women’s rights still hard at work on the global stage


NM Original Story by Anne Pedersen

For New Mexico-raised international human rights activist and educator Charlotte Bunch, “women’s rights are human rights.”

That may sound selfevident, but it’s still a radical idea in a world where liberty and legal equality are denied many women, sexual violence and patriarchal values are commonplace, and gender discrimination persists.   

For decades a voice for gender equality at the United Nations, Bunch is a “go-to” figure in the global fight for women’s rights. She was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 1996, and in 1999, then-President Bill Clinton awarded her the Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Human Rights.

The Center Works to Improve State Law and Federal Policy on International Trafficking of Women and Girls

April 19, 2010

For the first time in 2010, the US Department of State’s Trafficking in Persons Report will assess efforts made by governments and others within the United States to address trafficking. Because the Center has led the way to assist state legislators in the 50 states to develop effective laws and policies, we believe that our comments to the Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Office will be invaluable to this assessment.
