Advancing Women in Leadership
Women continue to blaze the trail to advance to the top of
organizations, currently holding about half of the country's
managerial and professional jobs. While this is a dramatic increase
from 20 years ago, women are still vastly underrepresented in the
senior executive ranks.
As women navigate the path to higher management positions, they
are challenged to define and develop their unique leadership style
to enhance their effectiveness and impact in their organizations.
Women must proactively manage their growth and development to
prepare for the leadership roles they desire.
Advancing Women in Leadership will help you uncover and
integrate your unique strengths and qualities that will help you
thrive and succeed in your current and future leadership roles.
Through an action learning approach, you will:
- Gain knowledge of the key competencies of Emotional
Intelligence and the link to your leadership effectiveness.
- Acquire skills to continuously build self awareness, overcome
blind spots and sustain effective leadership behaviors.
- Apply an intentional process to align your personal values with
your everyday leadership behaviors.
- Develop skills to sense other's feeling and perspectives,
emotional currents and power relationships to effectively manage
- Apply innovative frameworks and methodologies to drive
individual and team performance.
AWL has armed me with tools to identify opportunities to grow as
a leader and to set meaningful goals to help advance my
career. I feel more confident approaching difficult
conversations with my employees, my manager, and other centers of
influence within my organization.
The women I have met at AWL, with
their varying backgrounds and levels of experience, will serve as a
"board of directors" for me in the future. I know I will be
able to reach out to them for advice and I can count on them to
share ideas and successes.

The AWL experience was a
milestone to mark the start of a wonderful journey of growth and
learning as the leader I want to become. AWL has provided a
solid foundation of information and support for future growth.
The relationships that are made during the AWL experience are
priceless and they will be with you forever as long as you like,
which is something special.
Clinical Trials Study Manager
Roche Diagnostics Operations
The faculty have purposefully
created a safe and empowering climate for learning by bringing
together a diverse group of women who support each other's
growth. Through a balance of lectures, reflection,
collaborative activities, candid discussion, and peer coaching, I
have gained a leadership framework, insights, tools, skills and
best of all, a network of amazing and respected women I know I can
call on at any time. This class not only has helped me manage
myself through a rapidly changing business environment but has also
prepared me to share key learnings with colleagues to help them
more successfully navigate as well.
