WELCOME TO THE WOMEN’S CENTER

The NC State Women’s Center is one of four campus community centers (along with the GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the African American Cultural Center) housed under the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED).

The mission of the Women’s Center is to be a catalyst and resource advancing gender equity on campus. Through education, advocacy and leadership development, the Center provides programming, leadership opportunities and support services to members of the campus community.

2017 Chocolate Festival

2017 Chocolate Festival

Chocolate… cakes, cookies, pies, ice cream, flowing from fountains… the NC State Chocolate Festival is that and so much more! In addition to all the chocolate, the silent auction, the fun and games, the Chocolate Festival is about breast cancer. Breast cancer shows no discrimination– all ages, all genders, all races and ethnicities – everyone can get breast cancer.

This year, NC State University’s sweetest tradition, the Chocolate Festival, will be held in Talley Student Union on September 15. Hosted by the NC State Women’s Center, the Chocolate Festival incorporates one of America’s sweetest treats in an event that supports and educates about breast cancer. You will be able to sample a variety of different chocolate items from vendors around Wake County. There will be games to play, items to bid on and an opportunity to learn more about breast cancer awareness. Proceeds benefit the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and the NC State Women’s Center.

Feminist Fridays are both a community and an opportunity. It’s purpose is to provide an opportunity for transformative learning through discussion and critical reflection, often provoking dissonance and attending to the intersections of one’s micro or individual, level characteristics and how they interact with macro level systemic issues. Join for the supportive community, leadership opportunities, or engage in discourse about issues of equity within a variety of cultures.
