Women in Leadership
The Women in Leadership Initiative at Baylor University aims to pursue scholarship that transforms the experience of women at work, to develop future women leaders, and to advocate for their success all while preparing them to shine the light of Christ in the business world.
Three Pillars of the Women in Leadership Initiative
We are committed to scholarship that advances our understanding of women in the workplace. We aim to grow our thought-leadership on under researched women’s experiences at work by incorporating diverse perspectives from scholars in multiple disciplines. With your support, we can enhance groundbreaking research conducted from a Christian perspective that sheds light on the unique challenges faced by female employees, as well as the strategies and best practices that can help them succeed.
At Baylor, we are dedicated to preparing the next generation of business leaders. With your support, we can provide an enduring foundation for the Women in Business student organization in which students organize events for fellow students, women helping women here at Hankamer. Women in Business also provides outstanding leadership experience for the student board members of the organization. Women in Business began with a donation of $2,000 in 2005, and as the organization grows and needs of students grow, more support is needed to provide exceptional professional development opportunities to students. We aim to help all Hankamer students, male and female, develop the skills and knowledge they need to excel in every role God calls them to.
3. Local Community
We believe that building a strong community is essential for women to thrive in leadership roles. With your support, we can build stronger bridges between Baylor and the local Central Texas community to be a resource for local leaders and connect with local organizations for business women.
By giving to support our Women in Leadership Initiative, you can make a real difference in the lives of women today and for generations to come. Your donation will support important research, student initiatives, and a vibrant community of women leaders.
