The Art of Influence: Values-driven Leadership


Rooted in the belief that leadership is most impactful when guided by a commitment to ethics, morals, and the common good, this course provides a unique space for women to explore and develop their leadership skillset.



Breaking Barriers in Male-dominated Industries

Students will gain strategies to overcome gender-related barriers and thrive in their role as a leader. From finding your voice to overcoming imposter syndrome, fostering a supportive network, and overcoming self-doubt and perfectionism, this course equips women with the tools and confidence needed to lead authentically in male-dominated industries.



Me Time: Managing Self and Service As You Lead Others

Recognizing the diverse personal, professional, and familial priorities faced by leaders, students learn to manage self-care, emotional well-being, and mental health.
