TTUHSC Faculty Selected to Leadership Women, Inc. 2016 Class

 

Carrie Edwards, Ph.D., R.N., assistant professor at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Nursing has been selected to join an elite network of more than 6,000 women as a member of the Leadership Women, Inc. (LW) Class of 2016.

 

Edwards is an expert in critical care nursing, forensic nursing and a sexual assault nurse examiner for Lubbock County. Edwards joined the TTUHSC School of Nursing faculty in 1996.  Since then, Edwards has been named TTUHSC Student Senate Teacher of the Year in 2000, a member of Sigma Theta Tau International and a member of the International Association of Forensic Nurses.

 

Edwards is one of 90 outstanding women leaders competitively selected from across the state to participate in the longest-running women’s leadership development program in the U.S.  Throughout the year-long program, she will have the opportunity to broaden her state perspective by exploring the issues in four Texas cities and receiving cutting-edge information from recognized experts, government officials and other thought leaders.  Leadership Texas, now in its 34th consecutive year, is the flagship program of LW, a nonprofit social enterprise.  

 

Launched in 1983 as the first statewide program for women’s leadership development, Leadership Texas is patterned after, although not affiliated with, the co-educational civic programs that have found success in a number of cities throughout the state and nation.  Leadership Texas is designed specifically to help women learn about critical issues outside of their own industries and spheres of influence. Great leaders recognize that it is necessary to understand the cultural, social and economic shifts before us and the programming of Leadership Texas provides opportunities and access to help the women impact the future of our evolving state.

 

“The theme for the 2016 program year is ‘The Future of Community: A State of Possibilities,’” noted Linda Crompton, LW chief executive officer. “Participants will visit San Antonio, Amarillo, Corpus Christi and Austin, where each city’s opportunities and response to challenges will be highlighted.”
