Established in 2013, the Women’s Networking Association (WNA) seeks to connect professional women across campus through meaningful and empowering relationships. Providing an opportunity for women to network and support one another is an essential step for building women’s leadership at Michigan State University and in the Greater Lansing community.

WNA hosts monthly seminars which focus on professional development and leadership building. Seminars for AY23/24 will mainly occur on the second Wednesday of each month (besides where indicated as otherwise due to holidays or scheduling conflicts), varying from 12:00-1:00pm and 1:00-2:00pm presentation time slots. WNA programs are open to all but may have particular relevance to women-identifying individuals seeking to advance their careers or develop networking and leadership skills.
