Leadership Inventory for Female Executives is designed to bridge the existing gap of female representation at executive levels in Texas and nationwide. The goal of the course is to offer an arena for executive development among existing and future female leaders. The structure of the course and its contents have been supported with extensive evaluation and research on women leadership and executive advancement, with a particular focus on the female executive voice in public safety. The LIFE program is offered in small classes to allow for discussion, exploration, and professional career planning. Therefore, our policy is one participant per agency per class.
The Leadership Inventory for Female Executives (LIFE) program also has a quarterly newsletter, LIFELINE, designed to keep our graduates connected through education and inspirational information. You can view or download pdfs of the newsletter from our Online Archive.
