I am the Director of the the Inclusive Global Leadership Initiative (IGLI) at the University of Denver, which catalyzes research, education, and programming aimed at elevating and amplifying the work that women-identified activists are doing at the grassroots to advance peace and security across the world. Together with Erica Chenoweth (Harvard Kennedy School), I Co-Direct the IGLI Summer Institute.

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.
