The Women, Leadership & Equality Program combines teaching, experiential learning, and scholarship about women in the legal profession and provides an opportunity for students to engage in critical thinking about cutting-edge issues in gender and leadership. The Program helps students develop the professional skills necessary for success and leadership positions in law, business, government, the nonprofit sector, and the judiciary through the Rose Zetzer Fellowship Program, which offers training in professional skills, including communication, organizational dynamics, leadership, and personal negotiation through externships and other practice-based learning.
The Women, Leadership & Equality Program sponsors a series of Papers that includes presentations and publications by leading scholars. In 2013, the program sponsored Switch Point Stories: Tales of Sex, Race, and Sexuality.
The Founding Director of the Women, Leadership & Equality Program is Professor Paula Monopoli.
