The Women's Leadership Initiative (WLI), formerly the Women's Leadership Institute,
was established in 2014 by the President's Gender Equity Council. The broad vision
of the WLI is to enhance the leadership potential and skill sets of undergraduate
women leaders on campus, offer a forum for undergraduate women leaders to network,
and to increase the visibility of women leaders on campus.
The Women's Leadership Initiative allows for undergraduate women leaders to discuss
how leadership plays a role in their undergraduate careers and learn from fellow women
student leaders about the struggles and triumphs of leadership. Members actively share
their knowledge and skills with others on campus and within the Lubbock community.
Members of the Women's Leadership Initiative learn how to promote equity in leadership
and participate in networking events with outstanding student leaders and distinguished
professionals who have paved the way for women in their fields of expertise.
