The Women’s International Leadership Conference (WIL) is a student-led initiative organized by young people from diverse academic and cultural backgrounds. It is a two-day conference to be held on October 12 & 13 in the fall semester of 2019 at Jacobs University.
The conference is an intersectional feminist event which aims at promoting social justice, gender equality, and human rights. WIL provides a platform for advocacy, dialogue, and inspiration in the interest of advancing equality in the professional sphere.
In supporting our cause, you are helping to make this conference possible, contributing to a more equal and better word for all genders.
The Women’s International Leadership Conference (WIL) aims to fight the mis - and under-representation of women in leadership positions as well as tackle issues of intersectional feminism.
At the heart of WIL is the idea that the empowerment of women is imperative to create a society which stands at the pinnacle of political, social, cultural and economic life.
The focus on intersectional feminism is integral to our mission as we recognize that women of color, women of all sexual orientations, trans women and women of all socio-economic backgrounds are often forgotten and suffer the worst of societal marginalization.
We, therefore, strive for intersectionality and diversity in our conference. Our idea is that of a world of equality in which all women are empowered and free of discrimination. WIL is our contribution to the creation of this world.
