We first partnered with Northwestern in 2018. With a unique combination of excellent academic programs, desirable location near Chicago, and storied-reputation of attracting and producing world-renowned thought-leaders, Northwestern is an exceptional campus for our SHE-CAN scholars.
Our relationship with the university is further strengthened by the fact that many SHE-CAN mentors are Northwestern alumnae and serve on various leadership boards with the school. We look forward to deepening this partnership and working together to build global female leadership.
