CONSORTIUM FOR WOMEN LEADERS IN PUBLIC SERVICE
ABOUT US
We are an international non-profit organization with religious and political independence, legally formed and headquartered in Washington D.C., and extended through chapters in different countries. The CWLPS emerges from a shared vision and mission of its founders (mainly Fulbright Fellows). It consists of professionals strongly committed to fostering the empowerment of women leaders and promoting their participation in public service in the Americas and the Caribbean.
The CWLPS is focused on women; however, we also integrate men into the initiative, contributing to forming a relationship of equality and partnership between women and men
