IWL Research Mission

The Institute for Women’s Leadership conducts research on women’s leadership and women’s lives. We disseminate our findings through books, reports, transcripts and documentaries about women leaders, as well as fact sheets and data on the status of women in New Jersey, the nation, and the world. Our research and our practice are integrated in order to address the needs of women, and to promote public dialogue.

Our goal is to encourage the interdisciplinary examination of leadership in different contexts of science, technology, politics and public policy, the arts, business, law, the humanities, higher education, and the global arena, considering perspectives of gender, race, ethnicity, and age in exercising leadership.

We hope to contribute to the advancement of women’s leadership studies, women’s education, and higher education by sharing research on the work of the Institute for Women’s Leadership and by sponsoring research and forums on leadership issues.
