CHHS Associate Dean Selected for WILMA Leadership Institute

CHHS Associate Dean for Research and Innovation Justine Reel was selected as a member of the WILMA Leadership Institute. The nine-month program gives emerging female leaders an opportunity to learn from top leaders in the region and network, and visit a variety of companies and organizations. 

The vision of the Institute is to engage members in collaboration, mentorship, leadership, activities and training. The mentorship is made possible through collaboration with top CEOs in the region. The group meets once a month at a variety of sites, such as Live Oak Bank, PPD and Corning.

“The opportunity for co-mentorship is exciting because my professional goal is to mentor future male and female leaders in higher education,” Justine said. “This forum provides incredible opportunity for personal and professional growth.”

Justine is also a part of the WILMA network and has separate meetings and events. She looks forward to use these garnered skills to further explore leadership positions on campus, develop nurturing skills and provide mentorship for future leaders.

Upon graduation, members will remain connected with WILMA as mentors and speakers.
