About HRC’s Women & Leadership Program
HRC believes that women, including transgender women, straight allies, women of color and women of all economic backgrounds, are key to our success as a civil rights organization and essential to the
LGBTQ movement’s ability to win equality for all. As a progressive organization, HRC can and must
reflect the diverse communities in which LGBTQ live and work.


Women have an important role to play in the fight for equality. Recognizing that women’s rights are
human rights, HRC’s Women & Leadership program prepares women to take on leadership roles as social change leaders and builds the leadership pipeline for greater representation and participation of women on HRC boards and volunteer steering committees. The HRC also places a priority on women’s issues, including health and safety, the workplace and families.

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality
for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people
are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
