WILL provides many opportunities for active WILL members to attend Leadership conferences and programs at various locations around the United States.
This past summer, 3 WILL students attended the Boston Leadershape Institute funded by a Will Advisory Council Member. The Leadershape Institute is a week long program of dialogue and interactive self-discovery in a supportive learning community. It challenges participants to lead with integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. Participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be.
Two WILL students also attended a leadership program sponsored by Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) at Rutgers University called NEW Leadership, a national initiative to educate and empower the next generation of women leaders. NEW Leadership teaches college women the value of civic engagement and encourages them to see themselves as empowered leaders who can effectively participate in politics and public policy.
WILL students are also invited to numerous women’s leadership events and leadership seminars on campus.
