Simmons Strategic Leadership for Women
September 25 – 29, 2017

Have you ever sat in a meeting where your ideas (or you!) were ignored? Have you ever found out that a co-worker was making more money than you for the same amount of work? Have you seen others move ahead and wondered why not you? Sometimes just being good at your job is not enough to get you noticed — you may be missing critical skills and the networks you need to move yourself forward. 

During Simmons’ Strategic Leadership for Women (SLW) you will gain the knowledge and skills you need to become an influential leader in your organization. Join our internationally recognized faculty for this transformative week-long experience where you will master key leadership competencies, including understanding and using power, team building, and communication styles, and how gender dynamics impact organizational behavior and workplace culture. Our innovative combination of case study analysis, personal coaching, group problem-solving and action planning will help you take on leadership roles and strategically make your contributions visible and valued.
