Jane Nelson Institute for Women’s Leadership

Fearless Leaders Built Here

The Jane Nelson Institute for Women’s Leadership at Texas Woman’s University is dedicated to preparing more women to take on successful roles in business and public service. Through the institute’s three specialized centers—Center for Student Leadership, Center for Women Entrepreneurs and Center for Women in Politics & Public Policy—we ensure women have the education to establish careers as successful C-suite executives, the skills for building entrepreneurial businesses and the framework needed to run for public office.

The institute and its centers provide multiple platforms for women to advance their leadership skills and experience through education, mentoring and networking.

Grand Opening Postponed

Texas Woman's University has postponed the grand opening of the Jane Nelson Institute for Women's Leadership and the Sue S. Bancroft Women's Leadership Hall until Spring 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
