In today’s workplace, women are underrepresented in many key fields and positions. Studies show that women hold just 19 percent of board seats and make up only 6 percent of S&P 500 CEOs. And an astounding 56 percent of women in technology leave the industry within 10 years, largely because they face an inhospitable work culture or lack support. This course is designed to help women develop a leadership toolkit that lets them strategically re-engage with their careers and achieve long-term professional growth and satisfaction. Specifically, the course will help students cultivate a proactive and authentic leadership style by learning how to negotiate effectively, showcase their performance, advocate for themselves, and build strong relationships with key people across their organizations. In addition, students will discover how to leverage their individual strengths so they can serve as changemakers and positively influence their teams and overall work environment. Designed for anyone concerned with addressing workplace gender imbalances, this course will feature real-world case studies, interactive assignments, and online discussion. Students will come away from this course with highly actionable and practical tools that will help them grow into leadership positions in their given fields.

BUS 160 W: “Leadership Skills for Women in the Workplace: Aim High and Achieve Impact” is an eight-week online course and covers some of the same content as BUS 110: “Leadership Workshop for Women: Strategies and Skills for Excellence,” which is a two-day workshop on campus.

While this course focuses on addressing challenges women commonly face, the course is open to everyone, and the techniques and strategies taught will have broad application.
