TWHP aims to advance women’s leadership in all communities and sectors—up to the U.S. presidency—by filling the leadership pipeline with a richly diverse, critical mass of women

The White House Project, a national, nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization, 501(c)(3), aims to advance women’s leadership in all communities and sectors, up to the U.S. presidency. By filling the leadership pipeline with a richly diverse, critical mass of women, we make American institutions, businesses and government truly representative. Through multi-platform programs, The White House Project creates a culture where America’s most valuable untapped resource—women—can succeed in all realms.

To advance this mission, The White House Project strives to support women and the issues that allow women to lead in their own lives and in the world. When women leaders bring their voices, vision and leadership to the table alongside men, the debate is more robust and the policy is more inclusive and sustainable. By supporting women and the values that allow women to succeed—the full range of health options, security platforms that utilize all our resources, economic stability for all—we work to create an equitable culture.

In 2009, The White House Project released the report Benchmarking Women's Leadership. The report is unique in that it looks at 10 sectors and gives concrete solutions from experts in each sector for improving women's leadership. While other reports narrowly focus on specific sectors, Benchmarking Women's Leadership looks at ten sectors across American culture (politics, business, law, sports, academia, journalism, religion, film/tv, nonprofit, and military) and offers concrete, implementable solutions from experts in each sector on how to advance women's leadership to get to a critical mass.
