Hybrid classroom: In 2020, you can choose to participate in the program either face-to-face or remotely (if you are unable to travel to Berlin due to current travel restrictions).
Despite the evidence that businesses improve their performance with more women in leadership positions, many companies are not taking advantage of the positive effects of having more women in decision-making roles. Women’s Leadership Excellence provides a practical agenda for realizing the advantages of diverse leadership teams and supporting business women to maximize their impact.
The program will equip you with the competence and skills to create, explore, and feel comfortable using the value that your gender brings to leadership. In a supportive and collaborative atmosphere, you will learn how to overcome bias, strengthen your leadership talent, evaluate your career options, and acquaint yourself with networks supporting women in business. You will challenge pre-held notions of fairness and learn how to emphasize both your self-development and that of others.
