Women's Education Worldwide (WEW)

From May 31 to June 2, 2011, Smith and Mount Holyoke colleges hosted the inaugural Women's Education Worldwide (WEW) conference for faculty. Representatives of nearly 60 women's colleges around the globe came together to discuss the current state of women's education internationally and to explore new, innovative ways to enable faculty to collaborate remotely once they returned to their home countries.

WEW was founded by Smith and Mount Holyoke as a way to share best practices, to collect and disseminate data about women's colleges, to foster exchange among member institutions, and to advocate for the advancement of women's education internationally. WEW's first conference was held in 2004 and they've been meeting biannually since then.
