About Us

The Woodhull Institute is a not-for-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian educational organization that provides ethical leadership training and professional development for women. Too often, success has been measured in terms of the accumulation of power and wealth, with almost no consideration of how these accomplishments have been achieved. Ethical leadership is concerned with the means as well as the ends to personal and professional achievements. As such, Woodhull has developed a community that encourages women to lead with honesty, respect, courage and compassion; to strive for the common ground in decision- making; and to share in community service.
The Institute defines ethical leadership as the compassionate use of power with attention to:
• Community Service
• Mediation, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution
• Financial and Economic Literacy
• Effective and Ethical Speaking
At Woodhull we understand that all issues are “women’s” issues from social justice to education, from the constitution to the economy, science, politics, mathematics, Woodhull has reached out to women experts in all fields. Woodhull Fellows, Associates and Scholars do not share a single partisan or political position; they stand across the political spectrum. What they do share is the commitment to raise issues in a conscientious way, to encourage open debate, to challenge and enlighten public discussion in America.
Woodhull Women are making this a better world for us all by:
• Establishing successful profit and non-profit corporations
• Publishing their books, articles and op-ed pieces
• Appearing on screen, stage and television
• Raising ethical children
• Leading corporations and parent associations
• Being elected to public office
