Women's Executive Leadership

Women's Executive Leadership Program

Go Beyond Stereotypes and Discover Your Path to Success
 

Program Experience

Women in leadership roles are at an all-time high. Still, stereotypes and challenges for female leaders continue to impact their growth and influence resulting in a leadership gap. As more female leaders take high-ranking roles, there is an increasing movement for all genders to implement leadership styles that propel successful women in business and the companies they lead.

Women’s Executive Leadership training program is a professional growth opportunity for all genders to forget perceived gender barriers to understand women in business and how their executive management roles influence business agility and a company’s longevity. The skills acquired from this training enable a better understanding of and deeper empathy for women leaders - this fresh perspective leads to stronger synergy within the workplace.

By spotlighting female leaders’ unique perspectives and strengths, you’ll leave the program with a refreshed sense of visionary thinking that will energize your problem-solving skills, negotiation tactics, and leadership styles. Led by Faculty Director Laura Kray, this training will increase your confidence level and inspire you to take ownership over your potential.
