Join the Kimmel Student Involvement Center for the 4th Annual SIUE Women's Leadership Institute on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 from 4pm-8pm on the second floor of the Morris University Center.

This year, the theme is Power Beyond Position: Leadership in all Spaces. During this iteration of the institute, we hope to focus on women in various aspects of leadership, not just those in executive or formal career leader roles. Leadership is about participating in a network of support, empowering others to advance, and continuous improvement. Leadership is intersectional and complex. Leadership is about being present and active, regardless of title. This mini-conference aims to discuss all of these components through the lens of and keeping in mind the experiences of women. 

Topics of discussion could include (but are not limited to): inequity of privilege, intersectionality, the relationships among womanhood, sexism, and racism, authenticity for women in leadership capacities, gender roles, limitations placed on women in leadership, empowerment, and developing systems of support. A full schedule of sessions will be available by the end of January.

Students enrolled in the Student Leadership Development Program will earn 3 points for attending the duration of the institute. An additional 4th point can be earned by attending the debrief session at 8pm. 

This conference is open to participants (mostly students) of all gender identities and expressions. Space is limited. Applicants will be notified of their status by February 12. 

Please apply here by February 8 to be considered:
