Meet Our Staff

The team at the Women’s International Study Center is passionate about enabling, recognizing, and promoting the accomplishments of women worldwide. We are inspired by the women who built the Acequia Madre House, and strive for a level of program quality and careful preservation of their archives, collections and legacy that would have made them proud.
