2019-2020 Women in Leadership

Working Towards Gender Equity

The first Women in Leadership program was made up of a diverse group of mentors and mentees. Graduate students were selected as WIL fellows in fall 2019 and partnered with mentors. The pilot program had some exciting results, despite adjustments due to the pandemic.

  • ''Join the fellowship program as you will meet individuals with similar leadership aspirations, learn and develop your own leadership skills, and have the opportunity to be mentored by other senior women.''- Amy Schioldager
  • ''I think women absolutely need advice and sponsorship to get ahead and close the influence, equity, and wealth gap with men. Still, I think that while women need to ask for advice and support, particularly financial support, I think women and men with means need to do more to put financial investment in women.''- Maya Tussing
  • ''I believe it is important to give back through helping inspire others whether it is through personal or professional growth.''- Leona Tang
  • ''Ask for help more often and don't shy away from leaning on your network for help when you need it. ''- Christine Musselman
  • ''Mentorship is important to me as it is a wonderful opportunity to give back... I’m at the point in my career where I want to reach back and give someone a helping hand up that ladder.''- Tammy Cameron
