Our Story

The Women in Power Conference will provide an outlet for students and professionals to explore, discuss, and debate important issues relating to the advancement of women in leadership by facilitating a thoughtful dialogue between the Harvard Kennedy School community and top thought leaders and practitioners.

The topic of creating a pipeline for women to secure well-earned leadership positions has never been more relevant. Our conference theme, “Women in Power: Rise. Challenge. Thrive.”, will focus on uniting diverse perspectives and experiences relating to women in leadership positions. The conference will emphasize the need for an inclusive and productive dialogue, opening the conversation to women with diverse personal and professional experiences as well as allies that advocate for women in leadership. This constant discussion resonates not only in our classrooms, but also in local, national, and global politics and lives at the heart of policy issues in the workplace.
