IWL initiatives on Educating Women Leaders
The National Dialogue on Educating Women for Leadership was launched in 2000; the series is our effort to encourage a national, ongoing conversation about the development, meaning, and social impact of women's leadership. Panel discussions in the National Dialogue series have focused on best practices for educating women for leadership, reasons why we should all care about women's leadership, leadership as a collective endeavor versus an individual mission, and young women's leadership. Selected speakers in the series to date have included global human rights scholar and activist Charlotte Bunch; physician and internationally acclaimed nuclear disarmament activist Helen Caldicott; feminist activists Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards, and distinguished scholars Deborah Gray White, M. Elizabeth Tidball, Patricia J. Williams, Ruth Mandel, and Nancy Hewitt.
