About this Course

Women Leading Change is an exciting, new 6-week certificate offered at Claremont Lincoln University that examines what it means to be a woman who leads change in the 21st century.

If you are ready to use your personal power and exercise your influence to spark social change as an advocate for equity and justice, this certificate will help prepare you to do just that.

Why Women Leading Change? From the #MeToo and Times Up movements to achieving equity in the workplace to intersectionality and violence against women, the fight for gender equality is changing.

Women from different backgrounds, working in different sectors, of different ethnicities, with different stories — are speaking up, and people are listening and responding. The Women Leading Change certificate explores and underscores how women are writing a new playbook for power and equality.
