Advancing Women’s Leadership for a Just World

As a consortium dedicated to education, research, and public service, the Institute for Women's Leadership (IWL) at Rutgers-New Brunswick examines women and gender, advocates on behalf of diversity and gender equity, and advances  women's leadership in all arenas of public life.

The Institute for Women’s Leadership works collaboratively to lead activities in three areas:

  • Model leadership and mentoring programs for women
  • Interdisciplinary research on women’s leadership
  • Serving as a catalyst and incubator for innovative programs and resources on women’s leadership

The IWL brings together the expertise of its member units to examine and promote women’s leadership in education, research, the arts, sciences, politics and government, human rights, the workplace, and the world.
