The Women’s Initiative in Leadership (WIL) is a program that connects students who identify as women in the Harvard community with inspiring women serving as leaders in various fields and at different points of their careers. WIL equips Harvard women with the necessary tools to become future leaders in politics and other industries. The program features weekly discussions with accomplished women from a wide range of backgrounds and professions, with whom WIL members will have the opportunity to converse and network. The program also features professional development workshops throughout the semester, in which WIL members can gain the necessary practical skills to confidently navigate internships and employment after graduation.
The Women’s Initiative in Leadership meets for one hour every Friday to learn from and engage with successful women across all fields. WIL members can expect to meet and engage with high-achieving women in professions including public policy, politics, journalism and the media, non-profits, entrepreneurship, STEM, global health, and academia. After completing their semester in WIL, members will join our community of alumni with the knowledge necessary to serve at the forefront of leadership across professional fields as women in the 21st century.
