The Pipeline Project is a national training program designed to train 18-35 year old women in the technical skills of how to get engaged in leadership roles in both the public and private sectors in their communities.  Across the United States, the number of women elected to state legislatures has decreased by nearly 10 percent in the last decade.  In response to the decrease of women's voices in public policy, IWDC has created the Pipeline Project to address the serious gap in young women's leadership.

IWDC will partner with established organizations to facilitate The Pipeline Project across the United States.  The project launched in Cleveland in October 2003 with a two-day intensive workshop.  In June 2005, The Pipeline Project held workshops in Philadelphia and in May 2006 in Dallas.

IWDC plans to take The Pipeline Project  to 25 cities across the United States over the next five years. Currently, we're setting up a long-term, multi-year project in Durham, NC with Duke University.

If your organization would like to partner with IWDC to facilitate a workshop, please contact IWDC.
