Women's Executive Leadership

Go Inside the Program

While women have made substantial gains in the business world, today’s workplace has yet to fully embrace female forms of power and leadership, nor leverage the unique perspective and strengths that women can bring to the table.

With more women in the workforce than ever before –- and even more joining top leadership ranks -– the need for women’s voices to be heard has never been greater.

Reach your Leadership Potential 
The Women’s Executive Leadership Program is a program designed by women for women. Taking learning beyond the usual stereotypes, our program strikes the ideal balance between evidence-based learning and reality-based knowledge regarding women and their leadership potential. Course topics include:

  • Power and Leadership in the 21st Century
  • Business Value of Investing in Women
  • Bringing Your Authentic Self to Work
  • Strengthening Your Voice
  • Win-Win Negotiation
  • Navigating Your Social Network
  • Setting Off on a Path of Success

During this four-day course, you will gain a new level of confidence and greater sense of ownership over your own leadership potential. You will hear firsthand from high-ranking female guest speakers from top Silicon Valley companies, and learn to identify your own individual leadership style, better diagnose workplace situations, master powerful negotiation tactics, and set a path for professional success.
