Overcome the internalized barriers to your success as a woman in the workplace and embark on a journey of reflection.
Societal and cultural beliefs have long dictated a woman’s opportunities in the workplace. Although the conversation around women in leadership has increased in recent years, women continue to use male-normed management theories and face unique challenges once in positions of power.
The purpose of the Women in Leadership online program is to reveal and address these systemic barriers and empower women within business. Developed by the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, this six-week program delves into the historical and cultural constructs that have shaped belief systems of what it means to be a woman in the workplace. You’ll gain development tools and communication skills to overcome barriers to success, and be exposed to a global and diverse cohort of fellow women leaders.
The program analyzes the impact of gender stereotypes and focuses on building your leadership presence through non-verbal cues and emotional intelligence. You’ll learn to overcome inner obstacles such as imposter syndrome and understand how an inner dialogue is produced and harnessed. Upon completion of the program, you’ll have your own leadership plan, based on your personal goals and leadership vision.
