Women bring a variety of strengths into the workplace. Their unique insights and perspectives lend strength to a company. According to research from Gallup, gender diversity is a strong indicator of a company's financial performance.*

The professional challenges that women in business face are unique and often fueled by an unconscious gender bias in the workplace. You have the opportunity to overcome these hurdles for yourself and the women around you by developing practical strategies for leadership development.

The Women in Leadership online course from USB-ED will help you explore the core strengths of female business leadership and how it can be used to bolster the performance of your organisation.
