Leadership at Mount Mary College
The Mount Mary College Leadership Initiative, with its emphasis
on preparing women to take responsibility for social justice, includes The Women's Leadership Institute, The NEW Leadership™ Wisconsin Program, Leadership for Social Justice Seminar.
Taking responsibility for social justice encompasses the charism
of the School Sisters of Notre Dame,
the founding vision and mission of Mount Mary
College, and the characteristics and skills most needed in leaders
of the twenty-first century.
Many women's colleges have leadership programs but the Mount
Mary Leadership Model differs from others in that it stresses
that leadership skills are integral to full human development and
that leadership must serve the needs of the human community. Every
Mount Mary student is seen as a potential leader.
How well are women faring within the executive ranks of Wisconsin's top 50 public companies?
