Our programs are right at the intersection of entrepreneurship and leadership for student success,” says Dr. Monlouis. She further adds that, it is seeing the growth and development of our inspiring students that continues to motivate her and that she hopes that our readers will consider WomenLead and ENI programs for educational options.
