One of WAHE’s main goals is to provide networking opportunities for women to enhance their career development.
WAHE supports the professional and personal development of members through conferences, networking opportunities, cultural and educational events, and topical discussions with guest speakers. All events are held locally.
Since 1999, WAHE has been the ACE Network in Washington, D.C. of the American Council on Education’s Office of Women in Higher Education (OWHE). The state networks are linked to one another through their affinity with the Inclusive Excellence Group and the Women’s Network Executive Council.
