Leadership Circle

The 4W Leadership Circle is a collective of leaders representing Human Ecology, the Global Health Institute, Education, Nursing, Letters and Sciences, Medicine and Public Health, Gender & Women’s Studies, the Nelson Institute, the Division of Continuing Studies, Social Work, Law, and more. Members of the Leadership Circle report that the group provides a rare opportunity for joint learning and making new connections with other scholars across UW. These scholars share a concern for the justice and ethics of their work as they strive to make an impact for women in the world. These new connections have spawned new projects and funding possibilities, and have provided opportunities to mentor students. Leaders report a feeling of community, a sense of voice, and a validation of their work in their 4W connections. This unique support allows 4W leaders to flourish and expand their work in new ways.
