The Purdue Women in Leadership institute (WLI) is a dynamic one-day conference that exists to develop the leadership capacity of women and to expose participants to the issues affecting women that need leadership.
Students who attend the Women in Leadership Institute will have the opportunity to hear from two inspiring keynote speakers, attend intensive workshops, breakout sessions, panels and network with fellow students, administrators and community leaders.
The conference features two tracks:
- General Track: The general track allows participants to choose from a variety of workshops and breakout sessions to customize their conference experience and enhance personal leadership development.
- Elect Her Training (limited to 60 selected participants): Elect Her – Campus Women Win is the only program in the country that encourages and trains college women to run for student government and future political office. As a Running Start program, Elect Her addresses the need to expand the pipeline to women running for office and to diminish the longstanding political leadership gender gap.
Both tracks include the opening keynote, diverse presenters, lunch keynote and networking session.
WLI aims to inspire those who attend to contribute to a global society in which women are equal, active leaders and citizens. By providing participants with the knowledge, skills and ability to affect change, we hope to create a better campus, a better community, a better world. A world in which PURDUE WOMEN LEAD.
The Institute will take place Saturday, March 4, 2017 in the Purdue University Stewart Center and is open to all in the Purdue community. The cost is $10 to attend and includes light breakfast, lunch and materials. Need-based scholarship available.
Funded by the Student Activity Fee. Thank you to our partners for making this leadership development opportunity possible.
