TWU’S SAUNDERS SELECTED FOR LEADERSHIP AMERICA CLASS
Retired Maj. Gen. Mary Saunders, executive director of the Texas Woman’s University Leadership Institute, is one of only 30 women from across the United States selected to be a member of the Leadership America Class of 2009.
“Through this year-long experience, Mary Saunders will be equipped with information on the newest developments in the economy, technology and global trade, which will give her a competitive edge in our rapidly changing world,” said Wanda Brice, CEO of The Women’s Museum: An Institute for the Future.
Leadership America, one of the longest running national women’s leadership programs in the world, was established in 1988 to recognize and bring together accomplished women who have achieved success in their professions, their communities and beyond. The national women’s leadership development program equips leaders with the latest information and innovations for professional and personal growth.
“I am proud to represent TWU in Leadership America,” Maj. Gen. Saunders said. “I expect to leave the class with an enriched knowledge base and even more tools to be a more effective leader at TWU and beyond.”
Maj. Gen. Saunders has led the TWU Leadership Institute since it was founded in 2006 to address a nationally recognized need for leadership in civic affairs, volunteer organizations and corporate and entrepreneurial initiatives. She retired from the Air Force in October 2005 after more than 34 years of service. Among the many leadership positions she held in the military, Maj. Gen. Saunders was the first woman to serve as the director of transportation at the United States Air Force Headquarters.
Maj. Gen. Saunders was named a Distinguished Alumna of TWU in 1998 and a TWU Woman of Distinction in 2000.
Leadership America is the flagship program of The Women’s Museum: An Institute for the Future. Its national presenting sponsor is State Farm ®, and its international sponsor is Wal-Mart.
The new Leadership America format is a series of three stand-alone sessions (in Chicago, the San Francisco/Silicon Valley and Washington D.C.) that address leadership competencies critical to “agile leadership” in the current economy. The third seminar includes an optional trip to China to provide the participants a look at the realities of international assignments as well as a global perspective on the economy.
