W21: Women in Leadership Initiative


The US Studies Centre’s Women in Leadership initiative was launched at the University of Sydney in 2013 to provide a platform for research, discussion and promotion of contemporary issues related to women in leadership in business, government and non-profit organisations in the United States, Australia and globally. 

The Initiative was developed around three key pillars:

  • Global career and executive education opportunities, particularly through collaborations with US academic leaders and institutions
  • International research, analysis and discussion on issues of gender equality, women’s economic participation and leadership
  • Facilitating discussion and debate on global issues at the highest levels of leadership.

The program concluded in 2015.
