Biographical / Historical

The DePaul Women's Network was established in 2008 as a reconceptualization of Women in Leadership, the first women's network at DePaul. Created in 2003, Women in Leadership was dedicated to developing future leaders among DePaul's female faculty and staff. Though initially successful in its goals, the group's focus on women in executive positions excluded many faculty and staff members who were interested in female-focused professional development opportunities. In 2008, the group developed a new, more inclusive agenda and reestablished itself as DePaul Women's Network. The mission of DePaul Women's Network is "to enliven and enrich the work experience for women faculty and staff at DePaul University." The group hosts networking events, brown bag lunches, and other opportunities for women at DePaul to engage in self-directed personal and professional development. It also hosts the annual Women of Spirit and Action Awards, which celebrates women who embody the spirit, service, and compassion of Louise de Marillac. Joy Boggs served as President of the DePaul Women's Network during the 2013-2014 academic year; Jen Fox assumed this role for the 2014-2015 term.
