Women's Leadership Group


Professional Development Through Events, Mentoring and Networking

The mission of Glendale Community College's Women's Leadership Group (WLG) is to empower and inspire leadership growth through education, collaboration, and service. We achieve this mission by meeting regularly to learn from special speakers, engage in mentoring and networking opportunities, and execute initiatives to give back to the community. Membership is open to all GCC employees (men and women).

Speakers Welcome

We welcome learning opportunities. From informal conversations to workshops, please reach out to our co-chairs to express your interest in presenting.

COMING SOON: Kovala's Closet

Women's Leadership Group is proud to announce the launch of a new project; Kovala's Closet. When Dr. Kovala arrived here she had a vision and a unique idea for the women of GCC.  A clothing closet that would support all female employees in their professional needs, whether it be for a job interview, a shift in career or that you just simply have a clothing need. With a few recent donations we have been able to make Dr. Kovala's dream a reality. Stein Mart donated a mobile clothing rack with a large supply of hangers. We also received a very generous donation of clothing from a faculty member to get our closet going.  But it's still not quite there and we need your help and support to complete our goals. If you have an interest in participating in this project, or have items you're willing to part with please contact the group at
