The UIC Women’s Leadership Symposium was instituted to make leadership development more accessible to women on campus and to address the unique issues faced by women with multiple and intersecting identities who need information about how to negotiate the system, overcome barriers and identify role models to achieve their career goals.

Parking Information

Parking costs are not included in the WLS registration fee. All persons without a valid UIC parking assignment will be charged to park in the lot. UIC employees with active parking assignments can transfer them to the Halsted Street Parking Structure for this event. Attendees must have their valid hangtag displayed on their rearview mirror (anyone who does not have a hang tag will be charged). When you enter the lot, pull a ticket and when you exit the parking structure, just show the parking attendant your hangtag and state that you were attending the Women's Leadership Symposium. A special thanks to UIC Parking Services for their continuing support!
