NEW Leadership Oregon is the award-winning women’s leadership development program housed at the Center for Women’s Leadership at Portland State University. Open to college women enrolled at any college in the state of Oregon, NEW Leadership Oregon runs an inclusive women-centered leadership program that educates and encourages outstanding college women to develop paths towards leadership.
WHAT DO NLO PARTICIPANTS LEARN?
NEW Leadership Oregon teaches leadership through action. Participants:
- Practice public speaking, planning, organizing, and networking to address real social problems.
- Draw on the expertise of seasoned coaches and the experiences of women leaders in government, business, science, and the community.
- Learn a set of skills designed specifically to prepare college women for public leadership.
NEW Leadership Oregon’s ongoing program starts with an intensive, six-day, residential leadership training, specifically designed to introduce Oregon’s college women to opportunities for leadership. In addition, we have Bridge Sessions to address issues such as wage negotiation, board service, and career enhancement, as well as ongoing networking, mentoring and educational opportunities. By participating in the NEW Leadership Oregon program, college women find out why and how to develop their own leadership skills through interaction with Oregon’s past and present women officeholders, business leaders, policy specialists, and activists. Hands-on skills-building workshops teach women to lead by taking action.
WHY NEW LEADERSHIP OREGON?
Women’s involvement in elective office, business, media, law, public policy making, and all aspects of leadership is a matter of justice and equity and is imperative for a vital democracy. In order to solve the world’s most critical problems it is imperative that we have everybody at the table.
