Women’s Leadership is a program designed to help undergraduate women to further their leadership skills, provide a forum for discussion on women’s issues, and to examine characteristics of women in leadership.
Each section of the Women’s Leadership program will have about 8-12 Northeastern female students who are upperclassmen students and two facilitators. There are eight sessions which are an hour and a half each. Topics Include: Gender Identity, Effortless Perfectionism, Leadership Strengths, Beauty, Women’s Issues around the Globe, History of Women’s Rights, Sexual Assault, Role Models, and Empowerment.
Participation in Women’s Leadership gives you the opportunity to learn more about yourself, about womens issues, and about female leaders. It also connects you with other students who are interested in learning about women in leadership. This is one of our more advanced programs and therefore it is essential that participants are women who have already completed their first year of college. If you are interested in participating in Women's Leadership for Fall 2013, please fill out the registration form by clicking here.

Roles of Participants:
- Actively and honestly participate in the discussions.
- Support the ground rules and the co-facilitators.

Being a facilitator is an incredible opportunity. As a facilitator you must be committed to the program, be willing to engage students in challenging conversations, and be willing to learn from the program. Qualified facilitators should be in their third year of undergraduate education or above, be female NU students, and be in good standing with the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution. You and your co-facilitator will lead eight (8) Women’s Leadership sessions with a small group of 8-12 women.
