About the course
This Cambridge Live Online programme replicates the same high-quality learning experience you would expect from a face-to-face programme in Cambridge and benefits from multiple contributors and panelists, all of whom are distinguished leaders and experts in their fields.
The programme take a strengths-based perspective, looking at the positives of female power and encouraging authentic leadership styles that serve you and your organisation. We foster an atmosphere of trust, to challenge one another whilst giving and receiving meaningful feedback, and allowing you to explore your leadership style in a safe and supportive space.
Research shows that diversity in senior leadership encourages innovation, improves decision-making, reduces corporate misconduct and improves financial returns. Despite this fact, gender diversity is still a worldwide challenge at both an organisational and an individual level.
We believe that supporting and nurturing a growing pool of talented female professionals is a crucial step in achieving greater diversity and this drives the work of the Wo+Men’s Leadership Centre (WLC) here at Cambridge Judge.
Our Live Online programmes offer the same quality and academic rigour associated with all Cambridge education:
- Delivered by Cambridge Judge Business School’s world-class faculty – Cambridge Judge is a strong research-oriented business school with 19 research centres. All programmes are designed and led by an Academic Programme Director who is a member of Cambridge Judge faculty.
- Drawing upon the strengths and resources of the wider University of Cambridge and the Cambridge ecosystem, including accessing global alumni and specialists as guest speakers
- Small class sizes (maximum 30) and high levels of interaction with world-class faculty.
- Emphasis on quality outcomes – we seek to monitor our delivery against the individual needs of participants. It is no accident that over a little half of our open programme participants come back to Cambridge Judge at least once, often multiple times.
