Promoting a healthy environment with the Women’s Leadership Council

Coast Guard Academy Women’s Leadership Council presidents and vice presidents: Cadet 2nd Class Elizabeth Miller, Cadet 1st Class Kyla Hughley, Cadet First Class Mikki Hepler, Cadet 2nd Class Emma Compagnoni. Hughley- "The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you’re very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble." – Serena Williams Hepler- “The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me?” – Ayn Rand

In today’s increasingly global world, understanding diverse cultures and embracing differences is essential to success. Given the challenges and far-reaching missions of the Coast Guard, wise cadets seek to strengthen their understanding of other cultures and faiths, while growing in their own tradition. As a result, they better understand themselves, those with whom they serve, as well as the public they will encounter. The Coast Guard Academy’s Women’s Leadership Council works to promote female health and wellness, create professional female leadership networks and create positive relationships between female and male cadets.
