Sue Shear Institute for Women in Public Life Announces the 21st Century Leadership Academy

Students may join some of Missouri’s top women leaders at the University of Missouri-St. Louis for the 21st Century Leadership Academy, Missouri’s premier leadership development opportunity for college women, May 22-27.

The 21st Century Leadership Academy is a weeklong, residential program that encourages women to consider careers in public policy, and provides leadership skills to help them be successful.

The curriculum includes meetings with female elected officials, government leaders and policy advocates, as well as panel discussions, small group projects, and skill building opportunities. The Academy also includes a trip to Jefferson City, Mo., where participants meet with state leaders and participate in a mock legislative session. Academy graduates are currently working in legislative and executive offices in Washington, D.C., and Jefferson City, attending law school and graduate school around the country, and leading campus political groups.

Women from all academic majors are encouraged to apply. To receive further information, enjoy a slice of pizza and obtain an application, plan to attend an information session.
