Women, Leadership & Equality

Women, Leadership & Equality Program: Fearless Feminist Lawyers

The program provides an opportunity for you to engage in critical thinking about cutting-edge issues in gender and leadership. It seeks to produce lawyers who are aware of the barriers that face women seeking positions of leadership in society and who will actively promote women in these roles.

  • A research and theory seminar focusing on the empirical studies documenting the structural barriers to women ascending to positions of leadership.
  • An applied workshop in personal negotiation, communication, strategic career planning, business development and fundraising, organizational behavior and dynamics, and leadership development.
  • An optional externship/practicum offering students the opportunity to work with state, local and national organizations dedicated to serving women in need and shaping policy.
