  • Engage up to 49 undergraduate women in a leadership learning institute
  • Enhance participants’ leader identity and leadership capacity
  • Increase participants’ awareness of personal abilities and emotions through healthy self-esteem and authenticity, as well as the role they play in developing relationships and capitalizing on difference 

Rooted in the belief that leadership is learned through experience, education and reflection, WLI will focus on women’s leadership development, create a dynamic learning environment, and invite FSU women students to learn with and from FSU women faculty, staff and alumni.



The 2022 Women’s Leadership Institute will take place Oct. 7-9, 2022. Apply by Sept. 16 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time. Selected applicants will be notified by Sept. 23 and must confirm their spot by Sept. 28.


Become a student coordinator

The Women for FSU and the Center for Leadership & Social Change seek out undergraduate students who can provide student insight and enthusiasm to the planning committee. 

Student coordinators are crucial for making the annual Women's Leadership Institute as relevant and powerful as possible and creating a meaningful experience for participants. We are looking for a diverse group of women who can contribute different skills to an enriching learning environment.

In this role you will have the opportunity to gain hands-on event planning experience, develop transferable professional skills, and build community with women across the FSU community. This is a fantastic experience for continued growth and exploration on what it means to be a woman and a leader. Experience with the Women's Leadership Institute is not necessary to apply. 

Student coordinator applications are currently closed.
