West Virginia Wesleyan launched its new Center for Women's Leadership.

The purpose of the center is to share knowledge and experience on issues relating to women's leadership.

It will offer a number of activities including one credit courses.

The college said it hopes this new initiative will give people the opportunity to develop a greater awareness about issues and challenges affecting women.

"We really want to talk with both men and women about the different types of leadership activities for women, types of skills and knowledge that women need to be effective leaders, and so we going to tie that into some academic areas, but some co-curricular workshops," said Susan Aloi, of W.Va. Wesleyan.

Supreme Court of Appeals Justices Robin Davis and Margaret Workman were on hand to kick off the new initiative.
