Posted on 4-27-2023

Schreiber Foods, inc., recently announced a major gift to UW-Green Bay’s Institute for Women’s Leadership. With the gift, the Institute will be renamed the Schreiber Foods Institute for Women’s Leadership at UW-Green Bay.

“Personal growth and leadership development — especially for women leaders – is extremely important to me, and it’s important to Schreiber,” said Ron Dunford, Schreiber Foods President and CEO. “We’re proud to have our name tied to an organization that advances women both personally and professionally.” 

Identified as a key priority in the University’s Ignite the Future Campaign, the Women’s Leadership Institute has gained momentum in the last year, hosting dozens of formal and informal events and engaging more than 1,800 women who are looking for a flexible, dynamic resource for leadership connection, education, and inspiration. The gift establishes an endowment to provide long-term sustainability for the Institute and its work to become the go-to resource in Northeast Wisconsin supporting women and their leadership journeys.

“The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is incredibly grateful to Schreiber Foods for providing such a transformational gift, made possible by their innovative and hardworking partners who are committed to ‘doing good through food,’” said UW-Green Bay Chancellor Mike Alexander. “We are proud to be a university that supports women at all stages of their careers. Schreiber’s gift makes it even more possible for us to expand our efforts to empower women.”

The Institute for Women’s Leadership was created in 2021, recognizing the region’s growing need for a pipeline of women leaders and the distinct challenges faced by professional women in the workplace. The Institute’s mission is to advance women both personally and professionally at all stages of their career by educating, inspiring and providing networking opportunities to create a strong and equitable workforce.
