What does the IWL mean to you?

The IWL is an extremely important organization on campus for Bennies. It provides an opportunity for women (and men) to educate themselves, find their voice, and enter the world confidently. IWL exhibits passion, as the core group of women running it tend to be great thinkers, empowered leaders, experienced activists, and strong survivors. It provides a connection between all Bennies, demonstrating the importance of women's leadership and advancement.
