On behalf of the 2015 InWomen’s planning committee, we would like to thank the Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) at the University of Arizona for their continued sponsorship and commitment to the InWomen’s conference and our mission.
The Southwest Institute for Research on Women was founded in 1979 as a regional research and resource institute. SIROW’s region includes: Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Wyoming, Utah and northwestern Mexico. Researchers at SIROW work collaboratively with several University of Arizona colleges, other institutions of higher education, K-12 schools, Native American tribes, governmental agencies, and community-based organizations. SIROW’s projects focus on health and wellness, legal issues, education, employment, women’s history, and the arts.
