Teaching and Training

Harvard Kennedy School students are the world’s current and future leaders. WAPPP equips students with a sharp gender lens and a honed policy toolkit through experiential learning, a nonpartisan political campaign practicum From Harvard Square to the Oval Office, and our flagship course, Closing the Global Gender Gap. We ensure students graduate empowered and prepared to engage the world’s most pressing problems.
