The Massachusetts ACE Women’s Network fosters the networking of women interested in pursuing leadership opportunities in higher education. A 4-part structure — Network Executive Council, independent, state-based networks with state coordinators, presidential sponsors, and institutional representatives – facilitates these connections, allows for sharing of best practices, particularly at the State Coordinators Annual Conference, and enables local leadership training by the state networks.

The core principles of the Massachusetts ACE Women’s Network (IDEALS) are:

• Identify
• Develop
• Encourage
• Advance
• Lead
• Support
