The Rutman/Och Advancing Women’s Leadership Initiative is designed to support the Paul College of Business and Economics’ contribution to advancing women’s leadership in business and economics. Our goal is to fuel the pipeline of future women leaders in business, while strengthening attention to issues of gender equality and women’s leadership in the workplace in our curricular and co-curricular learning activities. One way we are working toward achieving our goal is by offering Rutman Leadership Fellow positions to rising sophomores (current first-year students). In order to be considered, students must have a minimum 3.3 cumulative GPA, have relevant, current leadership experience, show genuine interest in advancing women in business, and demonstrate future-oriented thought. Students must remain in good academic standing, including maintaining a minimum 3.3 cumulative GPA, as well as active, sustained participation in provided leadership programming. The leadership programming will include early move in, regular cohort meetings, access to alumni mentors, guidance from upper class student advisors, and participation in activities such as Leadership Camp, all of which will be detailed in the offer letter.
The application closed on Monday, April 16, 2018. Those who are selected will receive their offer letter by Monday, April 30 and will be encouraged to attend a special session on Tuesday, May 8 to meet the other fellows.
