Furman’s Women’s Leadership Institute empowers women to flourish

While this year's spring WLI was virtual, the photo here shows a previous in-person WLI class.

Furman’s Women’s Leadership Institute receives a glowing review from Upstate Business Journal in an article by Jay King. The leadership series, which took place virtually in seven weeks spanning April to June, covered modules from negotiation to innovative leadership and design thinking. Going forward, the program will offer a blend of in-person and virtual sessions – all aimed at giving participants the tools to approach problems in a way that yields a broad range of solutions.

Anthony Herrera, Furman’s chief innovation officer and executive director of the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, explains the skills WLI imparts and the importance of community partners and faculty in delivering the program. Furman’s Shaniece Criss, an assistant professor of health sciences, is mentioned as part of the program’s “deep bench” of faculty.
