At the Purdue University Northwest Leadership Institute, we prepare great leaders of all ages to excel in an increasingly competitive global environment.
2023 Northwest Indiana Women on the Rise
The 2023 Women on the Rise list includes leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs who are making an impact across Northwest Indiana. These are the women shaping business, guiding communities, and encouraging economic growth in our region’s communities. They achieved success in 2022 and are bringing that dynamic momentum with them into the new year.
“Leadership is like a muscle that needs to be worked. It’s using proven skills and techniques; it's life experience. It's making mistakes and learning from them.”
The Explorer Academy at the Purdue University Northwest Leadership Institute is a program designed for PNW staff members to help guide their professional development, build upon their strengths, and navigate all that PNW has to offer.
The mission of the Leadership Institute is to train leaders at all levels to grow their leadership skills, enabling participants to add their vibrant leadership to our communities. We aim for each participant to become a more confident, charismatic and authentic leader.
Your gift helps us to connect emerging leaders with leadership training and collaborative experiences, building the strong leadership that’s needed to serve our region and support sustained economic and community development.
