Inauguration Day Marie Wilson
"The White House Project was founded to advance women’s leadership in all sectors of society, up to, and including, the U.S. presidency. As an African-American woman of the next generation, I believe that this transfer of leadership across generational and racial lines is emblematic of our country’s journey, and reflective of The White House Project’s mission and results. My vision for my administration is to harness the power of the 11,000 women we’ve already trained to lead around the country – half of whom are women of color – and to leverage technology to train hundreds of thousands more.
"Our proven approach paired with the creation of an innovative online experience will reach millions in the movement to advance women’s leadership. Marie Wilson’s legacy and vision will support us as we continue to build the pipeline of diverse leaders who will ignite change."

The White House Project sits at the nexus of politics, business and the media, leveraging the power of each in order to enhance the public perception of women, propel them into positions of leadership and to accelerate social justice and progress toward its vision: women and men leading side-by-side in order to create a more equitable culture.
