Some girls are born leaders and some are taught to be leaders. Some women learned to be leaders later in life when they finally gain the confidence needed and then nothing stops them. It is never too late and here we hope to provide links to leadership websites that can inform, inspire and educate you on leadership and its nuances. The hope is that not only will you learn to be a great leader, but you will also be able to teach others to lead.
The Art of ... Leadership is an informative, inspirational and current website which really deserves examination. But be careful because you could spend all day there reading, watching videos and learning about wonderful women leaders and leadership today. Yes, men are also showcased, but you may not even get to them or you could actually learn something from them.

Global Women's Leadership Network Whole Women, Whole Leader, Whole World
Global Women's Leadership Network (GWLN) exists to help women step out of survival and dependence into their inherent power, enabling the transformation of world conditions - woman by woman. Our policy is to work for women, in partnership with individuals, NGOs and corporations, to create an environment conducive to broad participation for major social change around the world. At GWLN, we focus on the following areas:
Institute for Women's Leadership Empowering great leaders to be EXTRAORDINARY
The Institute for Women’s Leadership innovates in the area of women’s leadership by focusing on gender partnership in addition to growing and developing women. We seek to promote ‘gender partnership’ (optimizing the full contribution of men and women) rather than just addressing “women in leadership.” Gender partnership is above all a business issue. In a constructive and optimistic way, IWL helps companies unlock the market and talent potential that gender partnership brings – and helps them reap the considerable economic benefits.
