American Family Insurance has endowed in perpetuity a scholarship for students in Georgia State University’s WomenLead program. It is the first company-endowed scholarship for the undergraduate leadership development course.
Georgia State University’s WomenLead program has announced faculty appointments to a new endowed chair and two new named endowed professorships.
WomenLead students are benefiting from the wisdom of members of the C200 through a five-year arrangement bringing together this global organization of successful women business leaders and Georgia State’s undergraduate leadership program.
Two of the endowed positions will be filled by faculty members within Robinson, and one of the positions will be filled by a faculty member whose departmental home lies outside Robinson. The three positions will start in fall 2019.
The merit- and financial-need based scholarship will be awarded to students in the WomenLead Program, a professional signature experience that equips undergraduate women from all majors with the skills, experience and networking opportunities needed to get a seat at the table among leaders across all fields.
Veronica Biggins, trailblazing corporate executive, presidential appointee, community leader and Georgia State University alumna (M.Ed. ’70), encouraged WomenLead students and alumni to “know what you believe in and stand by it” in an address at the inaugural induction ceremony for the undergraduate leadership program.
