Program Objective

The Women in Leadership program is designed to study the intersection of gender issues and leadership components; and to learn about the evolution of women in politics, athletics, business, media, law, and science. Moreover, Women In Leadership provides an opportunity for undergraduate men and women to work interactively with an experienced practitioner of politics and gain insight into the way Washington, D.C. works. In addition to campus meetings, the program brings students to the nation's capital for a first-hand look at the political process. Participants also have a variety of professional networking opportunities.
