Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership

Mission: At the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership we are closing the gender gap in business, one female leader at a time. We educate and empower women to create social and economic impact through industry and innovation as we research and enlighten the global community about the importance of female leadership for prosperity and human progress.

As the first center ever focused on women entrepreneurial leaders at a business school, the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL) is one of the most visible and important ways we support women entrepreneurs and impact the larger Babson ecosystem. In 2017, the college was named the No. 1 school for women entrepreneurs who want to change the world and in 2018, The Center was given the Excellence in Specialty Entrepreneurship Education award by the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers.

CWEL’s award-winning programs, exclusive events, access to cutting-edge experts, and hands-on coaching impact a diverse set of stakeholders from around the world. They include:
