Laurentian Womyn’s Caucus (LWC)

The Laurentian Womyn’s Caucus (LWC) will be accepting official membership until October 15, 2014. However, it is never to late to get involved. Although the executive is unofficially full, there is equal opportunity to join the LWC and make a difference not only on Campus, but within the local community and throughout the region of Simcoe County.

On October 14, Jenn will be in the LSU office E112A from 9am-10:30am to share the exciting plans of the LWC and answer any questions.  The LWC will hold its first meeting the week following reading week. Time and place is DBT for now. 

PLEASE see below to learn about the mission of the LWC. I have included my Bio which details my academic endeavours, community involvement and experience. 

I encourage any students who wish to become involved with the LWC or want to offer support through volunteering with our campaigns and fundraisers to contact me directly at jcash@g.laurentian.ca to find out how. 

Thank you in advance and looking forward to connecting with as many of you as possible!

-Jenn Cash

WHAT IS THE LWC???

The Laurentian Womyn’s Caucus (LWC) raises awareness of women’s issues and gender inequalities on campus and externally and attempts to address these issues. This club also hopes to connect, engage and represent Women’s Studies students of Laurentian University especially the students at the Barrie campus.  The LWC has many exciting and informative social and fundraising events planned for the year!

As the Womyn’s Equity Commissioner for the Laurentian Student Union Board of Director’s, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself:

Jenn Cash is a fourth year Bachelor of Business Administration student who plans to graduate with two minors: one in sociology and the other in political science. Currently, attending Laurentian University through the Georgian College campus, Jenn not only works at the campus Bookstore but she also holds the Womyn’s Equity Commissioner Position on the Laurentian Student Union Board of Directors. She currently oversees and directs the Womyn’s caucus and earlier this year, was the lead student coordinator of “Beatz for the Cause” a fundraiser in support of the Barrie out Of the Cold program she created in response to a course project.

Following her success of “Beatz for the Cause,” Jenn caught the attention of TGAF which stands for Tony Guergis and Friends; a group consisting of Tony and his friends that donate their time to raise funds through events in support of the United Way. After accepting the position of Student Liaison and Event Coordinator, Jenn and the TGAF members hosted the 2nd Annual Tony Guergis and Friend’s Invitational Golf Tournament in Support of the United Way, at the Barrie Golf and Country Club. Aside from the ability to let her skills shine through at a new level, she also established a partnership between TGAF and Laurentian University and Georgian College through the utilization of student volunteers. Her work for this year will remain voluntary however; she will earn a 6-credit internship towards her degree next summer.

Jenn is a proud mother to her two and a half year old son, Chase, a dedicated volunteer throughout the community, a health and fitness coach and a leader and an activist throughout her many campaigns and events on and off campus.

Please feel free to email LWC at lwcbarrie@gmail.com or Jenn directly at jcash@g.laurentian.ca for information and or questions.
