About

The 150 Years of Women at Berkeley (150W) celebration, sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor, is a joint effort of the Administration and the Academic Senate.

Leadership 

The Executive Committee spearheads the celebration of women, past and present, at Cal. The History Steering Committee is responsible for collecting, creating and archiving information about the rich history of the contributions of women to UC Berkeley. The History Advisory Committee guides the History committee with their knowledge and advice. 150W is also grateful to many other contributors who have attended 150W meetings, created content, helped publicize events, and so much more! Thank you!
