Preparing the next generation of women for public service


UMass Women into Leadership is a professional development program, networking opportunity, and 1 credit spring course. Designed to provide hands-on training and practical preparation for a career in public leadership, UWiL is organized around four central components:

  • Leadership training through workshops and professional development activities,
  • Shared community through assigned mentor and networking opportunities,
  • Academic instruction through a spring semester Political Science course, and
  • Applied experience through internships and shadowing, including scholarship support for unpaid or low-paying positions.
