FIU’s 100 Women

Each year, we acknowledge several women from different fields at FIU to celebrate and champion their stories, to create an inspiring culture of diversity, accomplishment, collectivism, and collegiality. This will culminate in an annual celebration to help define the role of women in the 21st century and the role of women in the academy.
