Women’s Leadership Program
This co-curricular program provides scholarships, leadership development opportunities, and community building for high potential women leaders based on proven leadership accomplishments prior to entering Babson. Recipients of these scholarships use their leadership talent to make a positive difference at Babson and beyond. Embedded in the strong women’s leadership community at Babson, this program provides faculty mentors to each of the four classes of Women Leaders. It connects these Leaders to a busy calendar of programs designed to foster friendship and learning, and also enhances their skills to initiate campus-wide programs of their own making. The Women’s Leadership Program enables successful young women leaders to shape their personal and professional goals.
All WLP Scholars benefit from the following programs:
- WLP Semester kick-off and close out meetings: networking, leadership development and fun!
- Faculty Advisor to each class: Develop a close relationship with different women faculty each year.
- UG Reverse Commute Conference Support: CWEL provides stipends to attend women’s leadership conferences in the Boston area.

The CWEL Undergraduate Mentor Program connects women students to successful women leaders to explore current topics related to professional and personal development.
The program is open to all junior standing women students and runs from spring semester of the junior year to fall semester of the senior year. The program is built on three essential pillars:
- Expertise. The program is designed and led by a mentoring expert. Professor Wendy Murphy is a respected researcher in the field of mentoring and has years of experience managing successful mentor programs.
- Theory and Practice. The program combines the latest research on mentoring and entrepreneurial leadership with a series of activities that are both educational and fun.
- Custom Matching. Students and mentors are strategically matched to provide a successful foundation for the mentoring experience of both parties.

Gender Justice League
Comprised of undergraduate students and faculty, this lively and energetic group began in Fall 2012 as a forum about gender in the Babson Community. Informally titled the Gender Justice League, its members meet regularly to brainstorm ideas for programs and initiatives that foster and build gender awareness and promote gender equity on our campus and beyond.
