Alene Moris National Education for Women’s Leadership
Are you an undergraduate or graduate student with an interest in becoming a leader in your community?
Are you committed to bringing better representation for women in all fields?
Apply for the 2015 Alene Moris National Education for Women’s Leaders Institute.
The Alene Moris National Education for Women’s (NEW) Leadership Institute is part of a national program started by Rutgers University in 1991. This program is designed to encourage women to seek out leadership positions and engage more with the civic community. Women are over 50 percent of the American population and yet they are underrepresented in leadership positions in virtually every field. The Alene Moris NEW Leadership Institute is working to change that.
The Institute lasts for 6 days, from June 22nd-June 27th, 2015. During that time, participants will meet some of Washington’s leading women who can offer insight into their experiences and provide important training and networking skills. Some topics that are covered during the Institute:
- How to run for political office
- Public speaking
- Working in the non-profit field
- Managing diversity in the workplace
All undergraduates and graduates attending any 2 or 4-year Washington State college or Washington residents attending an out-of-state school are eligible to apply. The cost of the program is $150 and a limited number of partial scholarships are available. You do not have to be a Political Science major; anyone with an interest in improving their leadership skills and joining a network of influential women is encouraged to apply.
Deadline for applications is April 3, 2015.
