Event Details

Women face unique challenges in the workplace but they also add unique value and perspective. They shatter groupthink, improve communications dynamics, and reinvigorate companies in ways that make them more competitive. Research shows companies with a critical mass of top-team gender diversity enjoy significantly better financial performance.

Yale experts will lead a wide range of interactive and experiential sessions proven to enhance women's leadership behaviors. Participants build awareness of decision-making biases, develop skills to create high-performing teams, negotiate win-win outcomes, manage crises, understand corporate governance, and create a strong personal brand.

Participants leave connected to a Yale network of women who share a passion for leadership and the Women's Leadership Program Certificate delivered by the prestigious Yale.
