Furman University’s Center for Corporate and Professional Development is accepting nominations for the Women’s Leadership Institute (WLI).

Nominations are due by Oct. 9, 2015, and online applications are due by Nov. 6, 2015.

The Women’s Leadership Institute of Furman includes five sessions, which take place Jan. 27-April 27, 2016. WLI is designed for women who have demonstrated successful leadership, community involvement and a desire to help others. It brings together a unique and powerful blend of knowledge shared by accomplished business leaders and experts from the academic community addressing real world challenges and creative opportunities.

Says Victoria Kirby, Director of the Center for Corporate and Professional Development, “We live in an increasingly global society and are faced with economic, political and cultural challenges. Now, more than ever, we need inspired leaders—women who can be transformative in business, politics and communities.”

Furman University’s premier professional leadership conference is led by women who have achieved prominence in business and in the community. They share their successes and struggles to demonstrate how women excel in their careers, become more effective leaders, engage in their communities and build a powerful network.

Self-nominations are encouraged. An electronic nomination form can be found at  along with general information about the conference.

Visit the WLI website for more information, or contact Victoria Kirby at, (864) 294-2156.
