Educational Resources

The Center for Women's Leadership works to expand our understanding of women's roles in all levels and sectors of leadership and the barriers they face through our educational resources, ASD Speaker Series, and the work of our Academic Director.

The Center's educational resources, scholarship, and speaker series will expand our understanding of women's leadership roles across sectors. Ultimately, our speaker series, educational resources and teaching, combined with service programs, will develop the next generation of women leaders who will serve the city, state, region and nation.

OREGON WOMEN FIRSTS POSTER

One thing every teacher needs is a way to get their students’ attention — a visual aid. That’s why we developed the Oregon Women Firsts companion poster that was distributed to 1000 classrooms around the state, with the support of the Oregon Commission for Women. This inaugural edition of the poster features 14 Oregon Women Firsts. Send one poster ($15) to an Oregon Classroom and get one for you to keep! Teachers: submit a quick form for your classroom's free poster. More information available on the Oregon Women Firsts Poster page...
