The Campus Women's Centre (CWC) is a resource and referral centre for women-identifying, trans, non-binary & genderqueer individuals. We are here to advocate for you, create change, and support you. We encourage an environment in which individuals can share experiences with one another and be recognized and validated. We acknowledge that racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism, ableism, ageism, and religious discrimination are deeply embedded in society. We strive to provide an accountable space that addresses these issues and create an atmosphere that has zero tolerance for these prejudices. We are dedicated to advocating for positive change by empowering and celebrating marginalized communities.
Through educational events, peer to peer counselling, volunteerism, activism, group discussions, and individual consulting, the CWC strives to improve the quality of life for everyone at the University of Lethbridge. Men are equally welcome and encouraged to use our resources, offer support, and participate in our event programs. We aim to create an open, caring, and nonjudgmental environment enabling clients to share their problems openly.
We believe that information can alleviate misconceptions and add to empowerment; therefore we believe in the importance of educating our campus community about discrimination and ways that marginalized folx can get the support and resources that they need.
