Women in Leadership
Increasing the number of women in public leadership roles changes the way the world works. From serving on government and nonprofit boards to empowering more women to serve in elected office, we can take action to ensure our leaders reflect the diversity around us and that they lead with a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. We invite you to join this non-partisan leadership movement to ensure women are visible, valued and heard.

Women on the Bench
Three of the nine Supreme Court Justices are women. Only 33 percent of active United States district court judges are women. There are 83 women of color serving as active federal judges across the country. We need more women on the bench.
Join us for Women on the Bench, events where local judges share their experiences and their roads to the bench. You can learn about what steps you'll need to take to successfully be appointed or elected to the bench. Ask questions and learn about the process. These programs are free, but space is limited.
Network of Elected Women
The good news is that women are getting elected in unprecedented numbers in local offices around the country. The bad news is that elected women face serious obstacles to their personal and political success.
As the election night balloons deflate, the real work, the hard work, begins. Elected women have to learn to navigate byzantine legislative systems, sidestep the haters and mischief-makers, while managing their regular jobs and lives. These very real problems are getting in the way of elected women achieving their goals.
Enter NEW, The Network of Elected Women. Our one and only goal is to provide women elected to local offices with the support and guidance they need to do their jobs well.
Women on Board Leadership Academy
Serving on a government or nonprofit board is an honored responsibility and leadership calling. A coalition of organizations came together in 2020 to launch this free virtual 9-month leadership academy to empower more women, especially women of color, to take on this leadership role. The monthly interactive online workshops begin in October 2020 and will continue through June 2021.
