Western Women in Leadership

About Us

Our mission is to encourage and empower young students to confidently seek out and secure leadership roles in all of their initiatives. WWIL strives to foster the leaders of tomorrow that cultivate equality and change, and aid members of Western University’s community in pursuing their career goals.

Established in 2015, Western’s Women in Leadership is a rapidly-growing, student-run organization that strives to inspire young leaders at Western University in London Ontario. We host events such as keynote speeches, interactive workshops and forum discussions, panel sessions, networking and recruiting events, and more. These opportunities help expand students’ understanding of equality and what it takes to be a great leader.
