logo-wwpWellesley College, the highly rated liberal arts college for women in Massachusetts, has established a new initiative,  entitled Women World Partners, that seeks to develop the next generation of women leaders. Its first partner in the venture is Peking University in China.

The college states that is has “innovated an educational model for training women for leadership on a global scale—a pedagogy based on a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to problem solving. The goal is to share this unique model to help create the next generation of women leaders around the world.”

To inaugurate the collaboration, 20 Wellesley students are in Beijing to participate in an intensive 10-day academic program with 20 female students from Peking University.
