About the course

Women face unique challenges in the workplace: the glass ceiling, the broken rung, the likability conundrum, work-life balance, leaning in, the imposter syndrome, double bind, differing perceptions of their strategic communication. Talk about these challenges and learn how to navigate through them. Learn to be successful in many types of environments. Invest in your leadership development as a means of achieving your career objectives. And hone your executive leadership skills.

Our Women in Executive Leadership program is offered by The Broad College of Business from Michigan State University and includes the latest research from our faculty in the fields of leadership, emotional intelligence, communication, negotiation, and inclusion. Participants have opportunities to hone their skills and build their network during the program. Senior executives from industry will share their best advice for creating value during optional speeches immediately following a few of the modules. Given the increased number of challenges many women face as a result of the pandemic*, we hope you can join us as we offer this opportunity to help leaders advance with confidence.
