The Pipeline Project
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.
