The Commission on the Status of Women was created by the ASU President in 1991 to monitor the advancement of women in Arizona’s university in three major areas: equity, career development and climate. Since it’s inception, the Commission has sponsored and hosted many events and activities that have helped to increase the status of women at ASU.

The CSW is currently planning the sixth annual CSW/SC Professional Development Conference. The conference is run in conjunction with the ASU Staff Council. The conference will feature a wide variety of programming related to career development, professional skills, leadership development, and work/life balance. The conference is completely free of charge and is open to all ASU staff, faculty and students. Last year over 800 people joined us for this special event -- and we hope that you will be one of them this year! The conference will be held at the Tempe, West and Polytechnic campuses on Thursday, October 3rd. Conference offerings at the Downtown Campus only will take place on Wednesday, October 2nd.
Registration will be required for all conference events, and you are encouraged to register early. Registration will open to members of the CSW listserv in August. To get first access to registration, be sure to get on the CSW listserv. You can join the listserve by emailing "Join CSW List" to email@example.com

The ASU Commission on the Status of Women is pleased to announce the launch of Women's Connection: ASU's New Online Women's Resource Center. The goal of the Women’s Connection site is to help identify commonly asked questions a woman might have about her experience at ASU and help connect her with information and the appropriate resource. On this site, you will find a wide range of information on everything from on-campus preschools and scholarships to important university policies and professional development programming. Additionally, the site features a calendar of all upcoming events and announcements from ASU women’s groups, diversity organizations, and various administrative units. An A-Z index provides quick links to resource information. The site is for all ASU faculty, staff and students and there is something for everyone!
The site was developed and is operated by the Office for the ASU Commission on the Status of Women.
