About the course

The Women’s Leadership Forum sharpens the skills you need to succeed in the C-suite or in other positions that require enterprise-wide management. Learn how to make decisions confidently, exert power and influence wisely, negotiate strategically, and manage change effectively.

Female leaders enhance organizational performance

Studies indicate that increasing the number of women in leadership positions can make corporations more successful. Greater gender diversity on management teams also enhances creativity and innovation—broadening perspectives, ideas, and approaches to problem-solving.

Topics centered on women’s leadership issues

Working in partnership with female executives, Olin’s Executive Education team identified skills critical to women’s leadership and job satisfaction. The program brings together key developmental resources and provides access to exceptional speakers who are all seasoned female leaders.

The program takes place in modules and is offered in St. Louis. Sessions are held from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Because this is a cohort program, you and your classmates must take the sessions in the order indicated.
