The Women’s Leadership Network (WLN) at the University of Central Arkansas is a network created for women, by women, to support women who are seasoned or aspirant leaders in the home, at work, or in the community. The purpose of the network is to provide opportunities for women to connect from various backgrounds in Conway and surrounding areas.
ELEVATE. EMPOWER. EMBRACE.
WLN is an LGBTQ Safe Space Zone and diversity-inclusive brave space. This means we welcome and respect women across a spectrum of gender identities and sexual orientations. We also value and support members of historically underrepresented and diverse ethnic, racial, religious, linguistic, and national backgrounds.
The idea of parrhesia will guide the bravery in this network. This term, meaning fearless speech, has coached great thinkers and leaders—but it is often misunderstood. Bold speech does not mean you can say anything you want with impunity. Instead, it means that you are willing to be humble and vulnerable and to take a risk in telling the truths that will challenge one another and the world to improve. As a member of this network, you will be asked to pledge mutual respect and honesty. You will engage in personal conversations, and so you must be willing to hold yourself accountable to this principle.
Join us at one of our upcoming events and join the network today!
