The Center of Excellence is committed to promoting equality through systematic, integrated and expanded women's leadership activities.
With Leadership Development as a key initiative, the Center works closely with the Office of Women in Medicine at the Brown University Medical School and in collaboration with various University partners and committees.

- Provide opportunities for women to acquire the skills and strategies necessary for their professional advancement;
