The Tri-College National Education for Women’s (NEW) Leadership Development Institute is an annual five-day residential program designed to provide leadership training, inspiration, and support for women who do not already have extensive leadership experience. Our vision is to increase the voice of women in key decision making positions. We place particular emphasis on developing women leaders among groups that have typically been underrepresented voices in the political process, such as women of color, low-income women, women from the LGBTQ community, and women with disabilities.
