Catapult your career with the only program from a leading business school for LGBTQ executives.

Lead with strength. Lead with impact. The LGBTQ Executive Leadership Program teaches you how to do both — authentically, effectively, and confidently. This highly-specialized, one-week program gives you the strategic insights, personal leadership skills, design thinking innovation, and powerful network to accelerate your career.

You’ll explore the art of influence and decision making and develop new models and mindsets for innovation using design thinking. And you’ll learn practical tools for transforming insights into outcomes. All in a stimulating environment on the Stanford campus, led by Stanford GSB faculty.

Best of all, you’ll share this experience with other lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning executives who can support you and your career for a lifetime.
