Women's Leadership Community

The CWB works closely with the Women's Leadership Community (WLC) to help community members gain an understanding of gender diversity issues and women's leadership. This includes a presentation by CWB professional staff to the WLC members, alumni networking opportunities, and special events that raise awareness and build important skills. All WLC events are designed to help prepare women to enter the workplace with more confidence and business savvy.

Housed within the Trees Complex, the Women’s Leadership Community is meant to provide a space for women to interact and live amongst likeminded peers who share a particular interest in issues relating to social justice, women’s advancement, and women’s leadership. Through intentional programming, conference participation, and numerous opportunities to be a part of a strong women’s community, residents of the floor will not only be prepared to join and embrace the business world, but will realize and utilize their critical role in their local, national and global communities as women.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Connect and forge meaningful relationships with peers, staff, and faculty by participating in Defined Community events and programs
  • Develop essential leadership skills relevant to future careers and success at Bentley
  • Engage in opportunities to explore such topics as, personal leadership style, confidence, gender diversity, and contemporary workplace issues
  • Identify issues of women’s leadership through attendance at guest speakers, presentations, conferences, and networking events

Please note: The Women's Leadership Community is open to all first-year women. You do not need to be part of the Women's Leadership Program (WLP) to live in this community and WLP participants are not required to live in the community. The programs are separate.
