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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
