Leadership for Women: Practical Strategies for Success

  • Now Being Delivered in the Virtual Classroom

  • Organizations with women leaders in senior management are more profitable and successful. Yet few organizations achieve the benefits associated with gender equity. The old business models do not identify and develop women for succession planning pipelines. This women's leadership program is designed to help women develop an action plan for personal and organizational development that builds on their unique strengths and opportunities as leaders.
