What does women’s leadership look like? This course offers a unique experience for women and gender non-conforming students to learn about and become engaged in civic leadership and community-building. You’ll meet, network, and work with women-identifying civic leaders, gain insight into the opportunities and barriers facing women in politics, and examine how women’s leadership derives from their purposeful pursuit in advocating and making change in and for their communities.

In this experiential learning course, you’ll apply intersectional and feminist lenses to the examination of social, political, and economic activities. You will also develop and improve these skills:

  • Research and fieldwork
  • Presentation skills including alternative modes of knowledge mobilization (data visualization, online and social media platforms, and print reports and briefings)
  • Project management, fundraising, and conference planning skills through organizing and mounting the ChangeMaker Conference, which empowers young women and gender-non-conforming high school and undergraduate students
