The Women's Leadership Educational Initiative

Please join us in developing our Terrier leaders of today and tomorrow by supporting the Women Leadership Initiative (“WLE”).   This initiative was formed in honor of our “160/50” celebration paying homage to two significant milestones for St. Francis College – 160 years of SFC, and 50 years of co-education.

The “WLE” Initiative Fund name was inspired by three Captains of Industry who were honored at our 58th Annual Charter Award Dinner  on April 3rd, 2019: Stephanie Whittier, Lorraine Lynch ’91 and Peggi Einhorn.   The WLE will support a plethora of women leadership initiatives supporting SFC’s vision of diversity, leadership and empowerment for the next 50 years including:

  • Internships
  • Study abroad experiences
  • Lecture series
  • Career development and mentorship oppurtunities
  • "Power Breakfasts" and "Lunch and Learn" events hosting dynamic leaders of industry
  • Scholarships
  • Professional development for women faculty and administration
  • Engagement and recruitment of women for the Board of Trustees
