Council for Women's Advocacy

Council for Women's Advocacy (CWA)
The Council for Women's Advocacy (CWA) serves as an advisory committee on issues of professional development of all faculty members, including networking, mentorship, advocacy and recognition. The council consists of faculty members from both basic science and clinical departments. CWA values and promotes equity in all aspects of MCW faculty life, and strives toward this through collaborative efforts as diverse as promotion of salary equity to development of programs to provide back-up child care.
