NEW Leadership Oregon

"The Center for Women's Leadership has impacted my life by giving me the tools I needed to feel confident enough to take my career and education to the next level. NEW Leadership Oregon was instrumental in my decision to pursue a graduate level education. I feel that there is nothing that I cannot achieve if I put my mind to it." NLO Alumna

Located on the campus of Portland State University within the Mark O. Hatfield School of Government is a bold new women’s leadership initiative for college students. The next generation of leaders will face a growing list of complex issues, and must be prepared to step forward with vision, courage, and the skills to meet the challenge. National Education for Women’s Leadership of Oregon (NEW Leadership Oregon) aims to build leaders in Oregon today to solve the problems of tomorrow. The program is dedicated to inspiring, educating, and supporting the next generation of women leaders. Each year we graduate an outstanding class of women who are equipped with the skills to become fearless leaders in their communities. NEW Leadership Oregon is modeled after the award-winning leadership program designed by the renowned Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University.
