In 2010, at the end of a year-long celebration of 40 years of co-education at Trinity College, the Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) was founded by the alumnae trustees of the college to continue to support and strengthen the alumnae network.
The mission of the Trinity College Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) is to build and sustain a network of support for all women-identifying Trinity College alumni and students. The WLC creates opportunities for mentorship in which alumnae connect with one another and/or undergraduates. In addition, the WLC provides experiences and benefits that assist alumnae throughout their lives, in both personal and professional endeavors. The WLC also encourages alumnae to support the college philanthropically and strives to foster an engaged and dynamic community from which to identify future leaders who will help amplify the voices of all Trinity women.
