Day one – October 29: What Holds Women Back

As a result of this workshop, attendees will:

  • Learn what impedes women’s’ progress in organizations.
  • Brainstorm steps to overcome obstacles.
  • Build a community by sharing struggles and strategies with other women.

Day two – October 30: Cultivating a Powerful Presence: Strategies to Advance Your Career

Women often feel their voices are not heard and as a result organizations don’t get the benefit of diverse perspectives and innovative thinking. By identifying attributes of successful leaders, participants crystalize the vision they have of themselves as an influential and impactful leader and identify actions that will advance their careers.

As a result of this workshop, attendees will:

  • Learn what characteristics are key to successful leadership and explore the challenges women face.
  • Reflect on and own their strengths and begin to articulate their vision as a leader now and in the future.
  • Commit to actions that communicate greater levels of confidence and clarity.
  • Present your leadership brand with confidence.
