I am the Co-Director, with Erica Chenoweth, of the the Inclusive Global Leadership Initiative (IGLI) at the University of Denver, which catalyzes research, education, and programming centered on elevating and amplifying the work that women and other underrepresented groups play in leading movements related to the advancement of peace and security across the world.

IGLI has three core components: (1) cutting-edge empirical research on whether and how the inclusion of women and other underrepresented groups shapes global efforts related to promoting peace and security; (2) academic programs for University of Denver students and the broader Denver community related to inclusivity, peace, and security, including a speakers series and a practitioners-in-residence program; and (3) the annual Inclusive Global Leadership Initiative's Summer Institute, which brings women-identified frontline activists from around the world to the University of Denver for training and dialogue on how best to wage strategic nonviolent movements for social change.
