Submissions Deadline: January 10, 2020
The Women’s Leadership Institute (WLI) strives to raise awareness on issues women face in leadership, to facilitate skill development, and provide relationship building and networking opportunities for students, staff, and faculty. The theme for this year’s conference is Valiant Women of the Vote. We aim to foster discussion on civic engagement and the power of women’s voices. Whether participants are using their voice to shape the politics of our country or to fully participate in the classroom, we want to provide them with skills to overcome the gendered barriers that so often silence people.
We invite proposals from all disciplines and methodologies. Scholars of all levels are welcome to submit proposals. Topics of programs we are looking for include, but are not limited to:
- Career Equity
- Organizing and Activism
- Reflection and Identity
- Skills to Unlearn
- Self Care and Community Care
- Cultivating Leadership at All Levels
- Networking for Women
- Mediating Difficult Conversations
- Navigating Values in Professional Roles
- Who is the Valiant Woman?
