The WVU Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) empowers and engages women on campus, helping them achieve their full professional potential and form a community within which the participants can initiate valuable new relationships.

New Member Drive

The mission of WVU’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) is to empower women in leadership roles by providing them with tools, resources, development opportunities, and professional networks that will enable them to reach their full potential. As we embark on a new semester, we are asking you to nominate women who you believe would benefit from the opportunities, resources, and networking the initiative provides. Additionally, we encourage you to nominate yourself if you are interested in joining. 

Please submit a nomination for each individual you wish to nominate. Nominations are due January 31st, 2021.

Nomination Form 2021

The WLI has enabled me to develop a strong and large network of women who not only encourage me, but also support me. WLI is one of the best things in my 25 years here at WVU.
