Women in Leadership
Women in Leadership brings together women leaders who share similar career aspirations to deliver powerful leadership development with a team of women faculty and coaches. You’ll increase your impact and improve the critical skills required to lead strategically and navigate organizational systems.
What do I get?
After completing the Women in Leadership Program, you'll receive an authentic digital artifact – also known as a badge. This badge showcases your achievements and commitment to professional development. You can share your accomplishment with your network by displaying digital badges on social media, websites, ePortfolios, professional networks, and email signatures. Included in your badge is a digital certificate. Your network will be able to view your personalized and authentic certificate through your online digital badge.
In addition to a digital badge, you will receive a Women in Leadership Certificate of Completion, a powerful credential from the top business school in Canada.
In this program, women leaders will learn together about personal leadership effectiveness and leading strategically to implement bold visions. You’ll work individually with a coach to apply the results of a personal assessment to the situations that create or reduce your leadership energy. In small groups, your coach will help you experiment with different leadership behaviours and their impact, increasing your repertoire while remaining authentic to your sense of self.
The program will then dive into strategic alignment, leading change, and leading others for long-term sustainable performance. Participants will look at their own contexts for leadership, and develop goals and practical ideas for implementing change and enhancing performance back at home.
Women in Leadership will explore insights and the latest research about gender, diversity, inclusion, and their implications for leadership, yourself, and your organization. We’ll look at systems and organizational cultures that empower a diverse workforce, and touch on the roles that women may choose to play in systems change.
Upon your return to work, you’ll be inspired about your future, equipped with a personal agenda for your own leadership approach and post-program coaching from a senior executive coach to ensure you stay on track.
What You Learn
In a safe developmental environment, you’ll increase your self-awareness about the characteristics and competences you bring to your own style of leadership.

- Increasing diversity

- Leading with authenticity
Women in Leadership will also include personalized, one-on-one coaching for participants, both during and after the program to help reinforce learnings and provide ongoing feedback.
