WHAT IS WILD?
The Women*s Initiative for Leadership Development (or WILD) is a student leadership conference facilitated by an incredible committee of engaged students in collaboration with the office of Women*s Student Services and Women*s Council at Michigan State University.
The vision of WILD is to connect, engage, and prepare individuals and groups at MSU and beyond to be agents of social change on campus, in the community, and for broader society.
The Women*s Initiative for Leadership Development (WILD) Conference will be held at the MSU Union on Saturday, November 6, 2021. All Spartans who are interested in gender equity, empowerment, and leadership development are encouraged to attend!
We recognize and celebrate the various identities that make up the Spartan community and beyond. Whether those identities are based on race, gender, sexuality, religion, or nationality, we amplify the voices of the marginalized and celebrate our community.
Through an intersectional mindset, we intend to explore how interconnected societal systems have shaped our experiences. With this in mind, we seek to build coalition and camaraderie within our Spartan community.
We understand and celebrate the things that make us different from one another but also believe that our shared liberation is bound together in love.
We are deeply grateful for the financial and in-kind support we've received from the following groups, departments, and units.
