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 and responds to their career goals. Women Moving Forward is co-chaired by representatives from Academic Affairs and Student Affairs, the two largest areas of employment and includes activities with the ACE Women’s Network – Florida.
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.
Program activities are open to all employees regardless of gender.
