Accepting Applications: Tri-College NEW Leadership Development Institute

It's that time of year again to apply for a life-changing 5-day intensive focused on women's leadership and public engagement! The Tri-College NEW Leadership Development Institute is seeking applicants with a desire to develop their leadership skills in the areas of politics, leadership, public service, and community service. If that sounds like you, and you'd fancy an excuse for a trip up north early this June, consider applying for a chance to hang out with 50+ amazing women in the Fargo-Moorhead area this summer!

Tri-College NEW Leadership Development Institute

June 2-6, 2012, Concordia College, Moorhead MN

Applications accepted until March 23rd

This intensive 5-day residential program is designed to provide leadership training, inspiration, and support for women in the upper Midwest who do not have extensive leadership experience. There is particular emphasis on recruiting women from groups that have typically been underrepresented voices in the political process.

There is no cost to participate. Participants have the option of registering for a 3-credit course in Women’s Studies, Sociology, or Social Work (Those who choose to register for course credit pay course registration expenses).

For information or to apply, visit http://www.tri-college.org/new_leadership_institute/ or contact Deb White, Institute Coordinator at whitede@mnstate.edu or 218-477-2041.

Participants attend workshops on running for office, public speaking, fundraising, public policy advocacy, and working with the media. They meet with over twenty women leaders, including state and local officials, women in tribal government, nonprofit leaders, and community activists. All participants and some women leaders reside on campus throughout the institute, extending learning beyond the formal daytime sessions.
