Womxn's Leadership Institute




The gender leadership gap is real. Womxn* are still outnumbered by men in the most prestigious positions, from Capitol Hill to the board room.  We hope to change that for you.

You can be a part of empowering change by applying to attend Cal Poly Pomona’s first Womxn’s Leadership Institute. Applications are due Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 5:30 pm through the Women's Resource Center myBAR application.


What is the Womxn's Leadership Institute? 

The Womxn’s Leadership Institute aims to enhance womxn leadership identity through the understanding of leadership with or without positions of authority and leadership capacity through four emotional intelligent leadership (EIL) capacities for college students.


Over the two days students will have opportunities to get to know small group facilitators from across campus, learn content developed to empower womxn leaders at Cal Poly Pomona, and hear from local guest leaders about their experiences in leadership roles. This comprehensive program will engage administrators, faculty, and staff in the development of student womxn leadership on campus.
