Women's Leadership Institute (WLI) was developed in the fall of 2007 to address the needs of
SUNY Geneseo female students in leadership positions or seeking
to obtain a position of leadership on the SUNY Geneseo campus. The fundamental belief of WLI is that young women of diverse backgrounds need to look within themselves, assess who they are and what
their purpose is, and work towards creating their destinies, rather than
allowing their lives to “happen to” them. WLI is a support network for women to explore what it means to be a leader, a woman, and a change agent.
