Wellesley College will host the first Women in Public Service Project Institute this summer from June 11-22.
The institute hopes to provide a forum for shared learning and dialogue; exchange of experiences and expertise; peer-to-peer mentoring and networking; and build an important platform for cross-fertilization of knowledge and innovative leadership skills.
Since the institute will be launched a year from the defining events of the Arab Spring, it will acknowledge the uniqueness of this historical moment by including a particularly strong cohort from the Middle East and North Africa regions (MENA) as well as from other countries undergoing political and social transformations.
The Institute will bring together 50 emerging leaders, ages 25-45, from across the world. Travel and accommodation costs of participants will be covered to for all women who are accepted to the program. Applications are due February 15. To learn more and apply, visit the WPSP website!
