Cal Women's Network (CWN)

Cal Women's Network Logo


The Cal Women's Network exists to create a strong community of women* that supports collective learning and growth through social and professional opportunities. 

*All who experience life through the lens of a woman in body, spirit, identity - past, present, future, and fluid.


A campus community where women are empowered to pursue and achieve their professional and personal goals.

Vim+Vigor: An Anti-Burnout Workshop

While the new year is still fresh, let's pause our daily to-dos in order to explore where we'd like to grow in our personal sustainability practices. In this 90-minute virtual workshop, we'll say no to practicing burnout and commit to choosing more energizing ways to give our gifts at UC Berkeley. Join us as we collectively shape healthier, more balanced professional approaches.
