The American Association for University Women and NASPA- Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education invite students to submit a proposal for the 2011 National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL). NCCWSL is a two-and-a-half day conference focused on important and contemporary leadership skills for work on their campus and in their community.
The conference will be held June 2-4, 2011 at the University of Maryland, College Park, and will focus on Leadership for Today and Tomorrow. Conference attendees are both current and aspiring female leaders on their campuses and in their communities. While most attendees are college sophomores and juniors, NCCWSL also attracts non-traditional and graduate students interested in both leadership and feminism. While at the conference, these women have the opportunity to explore the philosophical underpinnings of leadership and women's issues, to develop skills for being an effective campus leader, and to learn about opportunities for personal development.
The 2011 Conference Workshop Committee encourages students to submit program proposals for general interest sessions lasting 75 minutes by February 11, 2011. All workshops will be held on Friday, June 3. Submissions on the following themes, and that encourage active participation and engagement from attendees, are particularly encouraged:
- current women's issues
- diversity, inclusion and equity
- leadership skills and styles
- advocacy and social change
- community involvement
- global citizenship
- environmental stewardship
- politics / public policy
- career planning and work-life balance
- financial management
- women and scholarship
