The Women’s Agenda Assembly is a biennial gathering to facilitate conversations about public policy issues that impact women and families. This free, non-partisan event is co-sponsored by the ECU Women’s Studies Program and NC Women United.

Using a draft agenda provided by NC Women United, participants will discuss and prioritize their issues. Women's Studies will send a report to NC Women United who--in turn--will share it with our legislators.
