Details and registration

Are you a woman-identifying student in Business or STEM looking to build connections and community at UIC? The Women’s Leadership and Resource Center invites you to join our new Affinity Group!

This month, we’re focusing on Self-Love and Self-Advocacy! A major theme of our January conversation was the pressure to prove our worth in male-dominated STEM and business classes and workplaces. Join us this month for an activity and discussion about changing the ways we’re perceived in those spaces, as well as some fun Valentine-inspired crafts to remind ourselves of the love and care we deserve.

All UIC undergraduate, graduate, and professional students who identify as women and are majoring or interested in STEM and business fields are invited!

About WLRC’s Affinity Groups:

Our Affinity Groups provide students who share an identity or professional interest space to gather, discuss shared experiences, support each other through challenges, and affirm and celebrate their communities. Each group meets once a month and is facilitated by WLRC staff.

We recognize that these groups encompass broad populations that will have some shared experiences as well as many varied and unique cultures and histories. Our goal is to create spaces for us to celebrate these differences while building solidarity and support for each other. We will consider creating additional groups in the future based on the needs and interests of our participants.

Accessibility info:

  • Masks are required.
  • Snacks will be available for takeaway. Attendees may not eat inside the event space.
  • Building and suite accessibility info is available on our website.

Please contact us with any questions or access requests: wlrc@uic.edu or 312-413-1025.
