Women's Leadership Institute


As part of the broader Impact Center mission of increasing inclusive leadership , the Women’s Leadership Institute is committed to the achievement of gender parity in top leadership roles to make a positive impact on society.  At the Women’s Leadership Institute, we believe women and men generally have different leadership strengths and are most effective when they recognize, cultivate, and act upon those differences authentically.  When provided with the resources and tools, women are uniquely poised to be exceptional leaders, transforming organizations, communities, and more broadly, society through inclusive leadership.  

The Women’s Leadership Institute helps women thrive professionally and personally.  It starts with attracting and training top female talent. It continues with a continuous community of support between peers and leaders for problem solving, navigating professional and career development, and lifelong learning.



  • How to be an authentic woman leader, capable of transforming the workplace, and more broadly, society
