Five staff members across multiple campuses at the University of North Georgia are shepherding a new initiative to install leadership and confidence in female students.
The Women’s Leadership Initiative, supported by a $5,000 Presidential Innovation Awards, is under the guidance of Lindsay Bailey, Director of student involvement for the Oconee campus; Mimi Fortune, coordinator of student leadership and commuter services for the Dahlonega Campus; Gicorey Keys, coordinator of student leadership for the Oconee Campus; Cara Ray, associate vice president for student affairs and dean of students for the Cumming and Gainesville campuses; and Stacie Rowley, associate dean for student life for the Gainesville Campus.
“We started this program because we noticed there was a lack of female students stepping into leadership positions,” Fortune said. “UNG has a lot of administrators who are women, but at the student level there were only a few women leading. We want to develop the leadership skills in our female students and give them the confidence to step up.”
