As part of our Women’s Empowerment Summit Program, CLLI is pleased to partner with the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University.

We invite you to explore Clayman’s Voice & Influence program, that offers online curriculum with faculty from leading universities. Voice & Influence aims to empower women and men to be as effective as possible and to create organizations where all people can thrive.

Watch the Voice & Influence videos individually or with a group, using the Clayman Institute for Gender Research discussion guides to share experiences and discuss what "One Action" you can apply in your environment to thrive.
