These resources are based on conferences and workshops that the Weissman Center has hosted. We consider these websites and books to be an excellent starting point for women who are interested in exploring ways to increase their influence and explore their leadership potential. We hope to add to this list, and we encourage you to check back often for new information. 


The OpEd Project increases the range of voices and quality of ideas we hear in the world, especially those of women who make up less than 15% of opinion makers in the media, government, and business.
