Women Moving Forward - Preparing Tomorrow's Leadership
Seminole State has a rich history of women in leadership roles and believes strongly in preparing future leaders at all levels. The initiative “Women Moving Forward” meets employees at their current levels, responds to their career goals, and adds students to the program for mentorship activities.
Women Moving Forward organizes current programs and tailors them for women at various stages of their careers, educational paths, and visions for the future. The College annually requests feedback of women’s interests for career development, mentoring workshops with speakers, and further programming, which forms the basis for annual program planning.
Women Moving Forward is co-chaired by representatives from Academic Affairs and Student Affairs, the two largest areas of employment. Several of its external outreach avenues are coordinated within the Office of the President.
The College’s program includes activities with the ACE Women’s Network – Florida. The Network focuses on employees seeking advancement to senior leadership. While this is the focus of the College's program Women Moving Forward, there are occasional opportunities to develop student leaders as well.
