In today’s workplace, women are underrepresented in many key fields and positions. Studies show that women hold just 20 percent of board seats and make up only 4.6 percent of S&P 500 CEOs. And an astounding 56 percent of women in technology leave the industry within ten 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 change-makers and positively influence their teams and their overall work environment.

This course will feature real-world case studies, interactive assignments, guest speakers, 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.
