Transforming Women’s Leadership Pathways (TWLP) Program

Transforming Women’s Leadership Pathways

Closing the
gender gap

The Transforming Women’s Leadership Pathways (TWLP) program was an initiative of the PLuS Alliance. The program supported ongoing efforts by Arizona State University, King’s College London and UNSW Sydney toward gender equity in leadership. 

TWLP began with a pioneering digital event in October 2020, which brought together over 100 opinion-shaping contributors to examine the evidence on the critical factors that limit women’s pathways to senior leadership in their fields. Ten action plans were subsequently created and implemented.
