Women@IR-WeBIND network

The Women@IR – WeBIND network aims to promote women leadership in International Relations-related jobs: diplomacy, international organizations, academia and think tanks, business, journalism, etc. The title of the project comes from Governor Mitt Romney’s use of the phrase ‘binders full of women’ to refer to his search for qualified women to occupy seats on his potential Cabinet. By inverting Romney’s wording in the network’s name, we want to stress how there is in fact plenty of very skilled women in the field.
Our work consists of a body of research to be published in journal articles, books, and op-eds, exploring women leadership in International Relations and Foreign Policy. WeBIND also organizes and participates in conferences, panels, and skills training seminars centered on the theme of promoting women’s leadership in International Relations. These events provide a space for discussion and innovative problem solving among women in International Relations.
