WHO WE ARE
At Xavier University, women account for both the majorities of enrolled students and club leaders. However, at the highest levels of leadership on campus, women are noticeably absent.
Here are the facts: Since 1999, just six women have held the role of student body president. Thirty-nine males and nine females have run as student government presidential candidates. Women are outnumbered in each election two-to-one at minimum and are rarely placed at the top of the executive tickets.
Student government has reflected the reality of the most senior leadership positions in the Xavier University administration. Out of 28 positions in the presidential cabinet, eight are filled by women. Three out of eight direct reports to the president are women.
IT'S NOT ENOUGH UNTIL IT'S 50/50.
"She Can, She Will" was created by Xavier women, for Xavier women. We aim to inspire female leaders to run for leadership positions by providing a network of peers for mentorship and support, an accessible toolkit with information about election and application processes, and the ability to nominate Xavier women to capitalize on pending opportunities.
