Women's Resource Centre

Co-ordinator: Nanako Furuyama

The Women's Resource Centre provides a safe and supportive place to advance women's equality and build community where all experiences are valued, and everyone is offered the resources necessary to make informed choices. The WRC strives to create a more inclusive campus environment where each individual's agency and voice are nurtured to contribute to the collective spirit of a community where citizenship and leadership is made possible for all, regardless of gender. We celebrate diversity based on – but not limited to – gender, ethnicity, race, class, ability age and sexual orientation and we believe that the key to achieving empowerment is through the cycle of reflection and action, creating positive social change. The WRC uses three pillars of work to achieve our goals: Wellness, Leadership, and Diversity.

Programs and services at the WRC include:
