The Women’s Executive Leadership Summit, sponsored by the Center for Advanced Studies in Business at the UW- Madison's Fluno Center, has just announced its 2010 Searchlight Scholarship program. The program, promoted via the Summit’s Facebook page, encourages fans and supporters of the conference to identify and nominate inspiring women in their lives who have made a positive impact on our local or global community. Three women will receive scholarships to attend the two-day Summit.

"We are looking to include women whose professional and personal generosity, dedication, and strength serve as an inspiration to us all”, says Pat Alea, Summit Moderator. “Facebook is an increasingly powerful connector of women in business so we are hoping to cast a wider net and build a stronger, more diverse community via this network."

The Women’s Executive Leadership Summit is in its eighth year, and is being held on October 6-7, 2010 at the Fluno Center on the UW-Madison campus. Summit directors believe that this new program will encourage women in professional leadership and their companies to honor and recognize inspiring women in the community who may be outside of corporate life via Searchlight nominations. The Searchlight Project goals are to help to build an innovative and diverse networking community for current and future Summit participants.

Nominations for the Searchlight Scholarship Program are open to the public, and are being accepted through September 7, 2010. Scholarship winners will be announced the week of September 14. To nominate an inspiring women, visit http://www.facebook.com/womenssummit.
