The Center for Women and Work (CWW) at UMass Lowell

Center Goals

Since its inception in 1998, the Center for Women and Work has demonstrated its strong commitment to addressing the gendered conditions of work in several key ways: by designing and implementing programs and projects that foster new ways of thinking about the gendered conditions of work; by encouraging and supporting interdisciplinary linkages across and throughout all of our networks; and by bringing to the forefront the reciprocal relationship between women’s work and the well-being of communities.

Mission of the UMass Lowell Center for Women and Work

The Center for Women and Work (CWW) at the UMass Lowell is a vibrant community of scholars – representing diverse disciplines – who are dedicated to the Center’s mission to: 

  • Advance knowledge about the relationship between gender and work through research. 
  • Enhance understanding of this relationship through education and training. 
  • Challenge inequalities, particularly through institutional change.
