The Empowering the Next Generation of Global Women Leaders in Universities around the World group aims to help populate the global pipeline of women leaders by developing empirically supported interventions in university-based settings.
About the Project
Women have been found to enter college with significantly lower leadership aspirations than men. Among Global 500 CEOs, for example, only 4 percent are women and, within universities, women only comprise about 22 percent of elite university presidents. The Empowering the Next Generation of Global Women Leaders in Universities around the World group aims to contribute to populating the global pipeline of women leaders by developing empirically supported interventions in university-based settings that bolster young women’s leadership skills and competencies and foster more equitable aspirations for leadership.
