Executive Program for Women Leaders
Act with power, navigate the workplace, and take the lead with new strategies and tactics in this unique women’s leadership program.
Power, influence, persuasion. We pack a lot of learning — lectures and simulations filled with techniques and tactics — into six dynamic days.
Gain insights from Stanford GSB faculty members who make it their business to challenge your assumptions, confront your fears, and turn obstacles into opportunities. And experience it all in the company of other dedicated and daring women, as you create a personal and professional network you can leverage throughout your career.
The Executive Program for Women Leaders uses research to understand the perceptions, behaviors, stereotypes, and backlash that women uniquely face. And then transforms those empirical results into effective strategies and solutions.
The program tackles the issues of negotiation, team effectiveness, power and relationships, social networks, and influence. These are the most critical and complicated issues. These are the essential skills you need — to enhance your power, navigate the workplace, and take the lead.
