PACSW Mentoring Program

In Fall 2018, PACSW launched the Women's Co-Mentoring Program. In support of our mission, the program seeks to increase confidence, community, and capacity amongst woman-identified employees at the University of San Francisco. The program aims to accomplish this through the creation of intentional, time-bound one-on-one relationships between University employees based on confidentiality and collegiality. Learn more about the program »
