PACWC's Spotlight on Women Leaders

The Spotlight on Women Leaders program was created by the Provost’s Advisory Committee on Women’s Concerns (PACWC) to celebrate, share, and inspire women’s leadership across the University of Pittsburgh. Our goal is to honor women mentors, role models, and leaders who have dedicated themselves to the advancement of the Pitt community through personal and professional effort. These are women of impact who have modeled leadership through their actions, who have made significant contributions to Pitt programs and initiatives, and who have made a difference to the Pitt community. By celebrating a diverse and inclusive group of University of Pittsburgh women leaders – faculty, staff, and students – we hope to encourage other women to aspire to leadership roles.

Women nominated for the Spotlight on Women Leaders program are celebrated for their leadership in the Pitt community, and are featured in Spotlight videos below, participate in leadership panels or other events focusing on women in leadership, and more. Below are links to videos for senior leaders, students, faculty, and staff. Please check back often as we are continually adding Spotlight on Women Leaders videos to our website.
