At the Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW) we are committed to strengthening our international connections and collaborations. We believe we have much to learn from women around the globe, as well as much to share. WCW has nongovernmental organization (NGO) status at the United Nations which facilitates our participation in this international work. We are committed to continuing and deepening our research and policy-focused programs in order to better understand and offer solutions to the challenges facing women and girls.
