Title

The N.E.T.W.O.R.K.: The Network for Empowerment Through Women Organized to Redefine Knowledge. Sponsored by: The Women's Center at North Carolina State University

Description

The N.E.T.W.O.R.K's mission reflected NCSU's changing attitudes of female students in the 1990s. The Women's Center provided a network of "role models for the women students at North Carolina State University through a mentoring progam." The "N.E.T.W.O.R.K provides undergraduate women students with an opportunity to be mentored by NCSU women alumnae and employees who work in the Wake County area. The student is matched with a mentor who works in a field similar to the student's career interests." Female students were paired with their mentors once a month and both would attend four programs focused on topics of leadership, communication, relationships, professional concerns, and gender issues. Students and their mentors were also given a list of books for suggested reading. The back of the pamphlet provides facts about women in the workplace.This pamphlet is very different from the 1965 pamphlet which was more concerned with a woman's appearance and moral code than her development as a working woman. Such a phenomenon is a result of the women's liberation movement of the 1960s and 1970s.
