Women’s Leadership Institute accepting nominations


Furman University’s Center for Corporate and Professional Development is accepting nominations for the Women’s Leadership Institute (WLI).

Nominations are due by Oct. 9, and online applications are due by Nov. 6.

The Women’s Leadership Institute of Furman includes five sessions, which take place Jan. 27-April 27, 2016.

“We live in an increasingly global society and are faced with economic, political and cultural challenges.” Victoria Kirby, director of the Center for Corporate and Professional Development, said in a release. “Now, more than ever, we need inspired leaders—women who can be transformative in business, politics and communities.”

Furman University’s professional leadership conference is led by women who have achieved prominence in business and in the community. They share their successes and struggles to demonstrate how women excel in their careers, become more effective leaders, engage in their communities and build a powerful network.

Self-nominations are encouraged. An electronic nomination form and general information about the conference are available at furman.edu/wli.
