Stanford University Debuts New Online Leadership Curriculum for Women

The Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University has debuted an online curriculum aimed at empowering professional women. The online curriculum is patterned after a classroom leadership program offered at the Clayman Institute. The Voice & Influence curriculum currently contains five videos each lasting about 20 minutes on subjects such as overcoming stereotypes, gaining power and influence, team dynamics, and negotiating tactics. More videos will be added in the future.

Correll“With in-person training, we are limited in the number of women we can reach and we are only able to reach women who are already leaders,” said Shelley Correll, the director of the Clayman Institute, professor of sociology, and one of the lecturers on the videos. “This new platform will allow us to bring the best educational content to the largest number of women possible and at earlier stages in their careers.”

The videos were produced in conjunction with, a nonprofit group founded by Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook.
