CULTIVATING AND MENTORING

WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP

As women in higher education leadership, we each have an important role to play in cultivating and mentoring women leaders.

Who We Are

WWHEL provides opportunities for networking, information sharing and support for women in leadership and encourages women faculty and staff to pursue leadership positions. Specifically, WWHEL can help and support women to develop specific skills, connect with colleagues who can provide valuable insight into the administrative role, identify career development contacts, and access state and national resources.

WWHEL sponsors an annual fall conference and informs women of other national, regional, state or campus professional development opportunities.  WWHEL maintains a website and a listserv which facilitate communication on issues of interest. WWHEL supports campuses by co-sponsoring topical spring regional workshops which educate, encourage and support women in leadership and helps women move into leadership positions.

Our Purpose

As women in higher education leadership, we each have an important role to play in cultivating and mentoring women leaders as well as positively affecting Wisconsin’s transition to a global, knowledge-based economy.  We bring an appreciative, positive, and authentic leadership style to our endeavors in post-secondary education.

Conference Info

Each fall WWHEL sponsors a state conference.  The conference provides national keynote speakers, concurrent sessions and panel presentations on leadership in higher education.

The campus hosting the WWHEL State Conference works with the WWHEL Board of Directors to establish a budget.  The campus conference planning committee has at least two representatives from the WWHEL Board of Directors.  The Board representatives have access to a common format/timetable which will be of assistance in planning and delivering the conference.  The state Conference planning committee should strive to have the following Wisconsin institutions represented in the program: UW Universities/Colleges, Technical Colleges and private Universities/Colleges.
