Women's Leadership Initiative

The Women’s Leadership Initiative is Back!

As part of the University of Montana’s commitment to building a community that accelerates women’s careers of impact, President Seth Bodnar announced the re-launch of the Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) for the 2019-2020 academic year.

The new WLI cohort will include 10 University of Montana (UM) employees and two Missoula Federal Credit Union (MFCU) employees, modeling a public-private partnership that will benefit both campus and the wider Missoula community.

Here’s How to Apply:

The Women’s Leadership Initiative seeks applications from mid-career faculty, staff or administrative employees at the UM and the MFCU. Specific application criteria and a submission form can be found on the WLI Application webpage.

Applications are due May 10, 2019, and may be submitted any time between April 10 and May 10. Members of the new cohort will be announced at the end of May, and the program will convene September 2019 through April 2020.

Here’s How to Give Feedback:

The Initiative will be coordinated by Dr. Nicky Phear and continue to be housed as one of a suite of leadership programs at the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center.
