WE Lead: Womxn's Empowerment and Leadership Conference
WiSE partners with a variety of departments on campus to provide a day-long leadership conference and networking opportunities for undergraduate women. Throughout the day, students engage in sessions such as: micro-aggressions and micro-inequities, gender differences, taking risks, the impostor syndrome, and becoming confident leaders.
WiSE uses CliftonStrengths for Students™ assessment to help students understand how to apply their talents to the choices they make in their academic, career and personal lives.
Through a partnership with the Leadership Studies Program, first-year students can enroll in a three-credit leadership course LD ST 291B (Leadership Through Service). The large group lecture is taught by a Leadership Studies Program faculty member on Mondays (3:10-4:30p). Small group discussions are facilitated by upper-division WiSE Leadership Peer Facilitators on Wednesdays (3:10-4:30p).
