The Wo+Men’s Leadership Centre (WLC) mission is to be a hub for global thought leadership, making the necessary changes to foster a gender balanced workforce.

Wo+Men’s Leadership Centre (WLC) is a centre committed to help women realise and embrace their potential in order to become successful leaders. Part of the Cambridge Judge Business School, the WLC achieves meaningful impact globally, across a wide range of organisations: from large companies to small start-ups; within for-profit to non-profit sectors, from corporations to government agencies. 

By generating support for gender diversity in senior leadership positions, we will foster the next generation of women leaders and expand the pool of women with the requisite leadership skills. 

How will we achieve our mission? 

Impactful research – WLC undertakes cutting-edge research to discover the challenges within the work environment and use it to generate practical solutions into the issues. Such research will enable us to make a meaningful difference in gender equality and women’s empowerment globally;

Innovative programmes –  research findings are used to create the basis of our women’s leadership programmes, aimed at inspiring prospective female leaders and employers;

Multi-faceted approach – throughout the year, in addition to our research, we offer a wide variety of panel events, workshops and our flagship annual conference to foster thought leadership, dialogue and action. We do so to engage as many people as possible to increase the support base for gender diversity in the work environment.  

Inclusivity policy – WLC is open to everyone, no matter their gender, age or position. We invite everyone to be a part of our community to help spread our message of diversity and create networks to promote open dialogue and offer successful solutions. This inclusive bottom-up platform is an important cornerstone of the WLC.
