The Suffolk Women in Leadership Network holds the mission of creating connections between the alumni and student communities while building the legacy of women at Suffolk University. If you’re a woman and you graduated from Suffolk, you’re a member of the Network. Suffolk Women in Leadership are dedicated to furthering the role of women as leaders and active participants in the University. The Network seeks to help shape the University's future and to support its mission through the engagement of the women of Suffolk University.

The Women's Network provides a way for Suffolk women to support each other, provide professional mentorship, socialize with each other, celebrate our successes and, even advocate for each other when things get tough. Most importantly, we provide a forum in which women can meet and discuss their common interests and concerns.

Through our efforts, the Network provides resources and programming for both alumnae and students, linking these women to the larger Suffolk community. The Network celebrates the success of Suffolk alumnae and fosters the achievements of future alumnae. The Network will continue a Suffolk tradition of volunteer-led programming, and we rely on alumnae and current students for our ongoing success. From attending events, to mentoring, to joining a committee and planning an event, we encourage you to get involved!
