Schreiber Institute for Women’s Leadership names executive director | Latest News | insightonbusiness.com
The Schreiber Institute for Women’s Leadership at University of Wisconsin-Green Bay announced the addition of Pa Lee Moua, PhD, as the program’s first full-time executive director.
Moua brings more than 20 years of experience as an educational administrator, primarily in the Fox Cities, with personal and professional experiences in diversity, equity and inclusion practices and its application in the areas of program planning, training, development and leadership.
“I am extremely excited to take on this new role and work alongside many influential women who continue to support and elevate other women,” Moua said. “To me, leadership is not only about impact, but transformational changes that inspire, empower, and enhance the narrative of leadership to include more women who look like me.”
The university established the institute in 2021, recognizing the region’s growing need for a pipeline of women leaders and the distinct challenges they face in the workplace. The institute is a comprehensive leadership resource committed to providing ongoing, forward-thinking connection, education and inspiration to support women.
“UW-Green Bay is committed to building the important infrastructure needed to fuel the institute’s continued growth and momentum,” said Jess Lambrecht, executive officer for continuing education and community engagement. “Pa Lee’s rich educational, research and community experiences will be instrumental in the Institute’s continued growth.
According to outgoing executive director Janet Bonkowski, in the last year, the Institute gained significant momentum, hosting dozens of formal and informal educational, inspirational and networking events while engaging with more than 2,000 individuals. In April 2023, the Institute was renamed the Schreiber Institute for Women’s Leadership when the Green Bay-based food company made a significant financial gift, providing long-term sustainability for the Institute and its work to become the go-to resource in Northeast Wisconsin supporting women and their leadership journeys.
“We’ve seen firsthand that there’s a demand for this type of resource in our region,” Bonkowski said. “The institute’s work is a strong strategic fit for the University’s access mission. When we say we are here to offer education to anyone who wants it, we mean everyone.”
