Women's Global Leadership Institute

"At the heart of CWGL’s work lies the Women’s Global Leadership Institute (WGLI), the first project designed and implemented shortly after CWGL opened its doors in 1989. An intensive, two-week residential program at CWGL’s facilities at Rutgers University, each Institute enables up to 25 women from all regions of the world to become more effective women’s human rights leaders in policy and practice. There are about ten applicants for each available space. During the Institutes, participants: engage in discussions of human rights issues; develop local and global strategies; attend workshops on women’s leadership, United Nations structure and operation, and human rights education. They also exchange ideas with resource people and CWGL staff on fundraising, strategic planning, and understanding and dealing with diversity." [1]
