How it works

Description

During this intensive and highly interactive course, the instructor will draw on the latest academic research and her 25+ years of experience as an analyst, investor, and corporate director, to explore the current state of empirical evidence about the status of women as leaders, investigate the barriers that have made it more difficult for women to reach the top of the hospitality industry, and consider ways in which individuals can overcome them. Participants will complete the course feeling more empowered and knowledgeable about when and why gender matters in organizational advancement; will have thought more deeply about their own biases about themselves and others; and will have developed a toolkit of useful skills, strategies, and approaches for effectively managing their path to leadership and reducing gender inequality within the organizations in which they work and lead.
