Women’s Leadership Initiative
The Mays Business School Women’s Leadership Institute (WLI) was created as a vehicle to boost the number of women in leadership positions and demonstrate our commitment to developing women as transformational leaders. National statistics provide compelling support for the need for WLI. Fifty percent of all undergraduate degrees and thirty percent of MBAs granted in the U.S. in 2014 went to women. Yet less than five percent of Fortune 500 firms are headed by women.
In an effort to arrest this alarming trend, Mays Business School has developed WLI to leverage the knowledge of our world class leadership faculty, the power of the Aggie Network, and our Corporate Partners to offer a gateway to seats at board tables and development activities for those aspiring to expand the scope of their leadership opportunities.
