Equality for women in the workplace depends on developing women who can lead. NCCWSL teaches leadership skills through its extensive workshop curricula to its college and university attendees.
NCCWSL helps female undergraduate and graduate students develop and strengthen a voice, skill set, and mind-set for leadership and they learn how, why, and when to take action and be an agent for change. They gain a better understanding of local, national, and global issues and policies affecting women and own their own identities. They also gain a greater understanding of their role in supporting diverse voices and supporting them. It prepares them by helping students build a professional tool kit for postgraduate life.
