Council of Advisors

The Wellesley Centers for Women benefits from the support of a Council of Advisors--a group of dedicated women and men who share a concern for women, children, and families. The Council of Advisors is comprised of colleagues who work on similar issues nationally and internationally, as well as Wellesley College trustees, faculty, and students.
