NEW Leadership Nevada is our flagship educational outreach program. Our June six-day summer institute brings together 25 college students from across the state to learn about leadership and civic participation from accomplished women leaders. NEW Leadership Nevada is open to undergraduate and graduate students attending a college or university in Nevada.  Students attend at absolutely no personal costs.  We raise the funding to cover all travel, lodging, and meal expenses. Nevada residents attending schools in other states are also encouraged to apply.

A key component of our research mission involves engaging in and researching educational programs. We are dedicated to teaching and mentoring women. We also work to develop the skills and talents of the next generation of researchers. We have a number of initiatives that focus on pedagogy, as well as training future researchers and leaders.

The Gender Research Roundtable Series

WRIN hosts a number of Gender Research Roundtable (GRR) events each year, where members of the gender research community come together to listen to presentations and discuss drafts of projects during the early and middle stages of development. GRR presentations are announced throughout the academic year, and an updated list of events can be found on our events page.

GALS with Heart

We are collaborating with UNLV’s School of Medicine, members of our Community Advisory Board, and local experts to craft these workshops. Our hope is to create a full academic year of Educational Enrichment workshops to supplement the Middle School’s 2022-2023 academic year. This will also provide an opportunity for our NEW Leadership Alumnae to engage and mentor these students while teaching them the importance of civic engagement. We are proud that the reach of NEW Leadership continues to grow!
