Women of Westwood aims to honor 50 years of comprehensive excellence from UCLA female student-athletes and coaches since the creation of Title IX in 1972, as well as inspire philanthropy to enhance the educational and athletic-related resources UCLA provides to help shape the next generation of female leaders.
UCLA remains committed to empowering female student-athletes and coaches both past and present. The Women of Westwood fundraising initiative will allow for alumni, fans and friends of UCLA Athletics to share in that commitment and help build a sustainable future for the women’s athletics programs at UCLA.
"In 1972, they passed Title IX, and in 1975 I had no idea where I was going to school, but UCLA came to me and offered the very first women’s athletic scholarship... And so I played basketball, volleyball, ran track here, and that was the best decision I ever made."
"As someone who has worked with hundreds of incredible women over my 37 year career at UCLA, I couldn’t be more proud to support Women of Westwood. This celebration is a chance to commemorate the wonderful successes of our women’s athletics programs, while the fundraising initiative is an opportunity to build upon those successes from the last 50 years. Join me as we pioneer the way for female student-athletes to represent UCLA as difference-makers in our community for years to come"
