Mission Overview:
American University Student Government Women’s Initiative (WI) is a non-partisan, student-run organization that helps coordinate and advise campus departments and committees on programming and policy decisions that affect marginalized students, faculty, and staff of American University. WI is housed in the Vice President’s Cabinet of American University Student Government.

WI is responsible for creating and delivering responsive, effective and educational programming to address a wide range of issues through the lens of gender and sexuality. WI programming reflects the core values of anti-violence, anti-racism, environmental & climate justice, queer & trans inclusion, and wellness. WI is committed to working in collaboration with other student organizations, academic departments, student services, and off-campus organizations to further this mission.

WI is committed to progression, inclusivity, and responding to the programming needs of the American University community. Moving forward, the goal of WI is to exceed these expectations through cross-collaboration. WI serves as a safe space and resource for grassroots activism and coalition-building.

Expectations of WI E-Board Staff:
➢ Attend weekly executive board staff meetings
➢ Attend all pre-event walkthroughs
➢ Attend all WI programs and events throughout the year.
