STEP UP YOUR LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL
This semester you can take a class that will change your life. Women and Leadership, CCEN 2100, is a class that helps students discover their passions and develop them into leadership potential. Women and Leadership is a fun elective that will give you an edge as you move towards your career aspirations. Students engage in interactive exercises, go on field trips, and learn practical ways to turn their goals into actions.
Taught by the Women’s Leadership Institute in the College of Liberal Arts, CCEN 2100 counts in both the Community and Civic Engagement minor and in the Women’s Studies minor. The course focuses on closing the leadership gap and explores the reasons that women currently hold only 18% of top leadership positions. Students are given the tools to close that gap by reconsidering the roles men and women play in our culture. Men are welcome to take this class because the Women’s Leadership Institute believes that the leadership gap will never be closed without the help of men who appreciate women’s abilities to help us all face the civic challenges of our time.
The course offers an engaging combination of guest lectures, virtual lectures, exercises, field trips, and traditional classroom activities. Guest lecturers come from all spectrums of the leadership landscape including nonprofit leadership, community engagement, academics, business, and politics. Students are also encouraged to blog on the WLI’s LED talk page which features short youtube videos of significant leaders such as Lilly Ledbetter, Marie Wilson, Lt. Governor Kay Ivey, Chief Justice Sue Bell Cobb, and Dean Anna Gramberg.
Past students report that their interactions with real leaders have helped them learn to navigate the obstacles of leadership and achieve their goals. The course is offered almost every semester. This semester it will be held on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00-3:15in Haley Center 2124. What are you waiting for? Sign up now to step up your leadership potential.
