The NASPA WomXn in Student Affairs (WISA) Region IV-East Virtual Conference was developed with the intent of providing womXn with a platform to give voice to our needs as student affairs professionals.
This year's theme, "Shattering Ceilings - No day like today, no year like this year, no self like myself" showcases the Diversity and Resistance of womxn across the world and those connected to WISA. The 2021 WISA Virtual Conference will amplify the voices of womxn in our field while inspiring womxn to share their stories of strength, Perseverance, and resiliency during this last year. We hope you join us for this semi-annual event!
