Over 50% of the U.S. population is female, yet under 30% of women hold executive leadership positions. We have a leadership pipeline problem.
The majority of college graduates are female today, yet the number of men getting promoted into first-level manager and supervisor roles is significantly higher than women. Our female leadership gap starts at the beginning of the pipeline, right after college.
If we want to create gender equity in the workplace, especially in leadership positions, we must provide better leadership development to emerging and high potential female leaders earlier in their career. The Emerging Leaders Academy is exclusively for women; designed for them, by female leaders, experts, and coaches.
The program is specifically designed for female emerging and high potential leaders. Participants would be new to leadership or in the pipeline to take on new leadership responsibility within the next 12-18 months. Women may already be leading a team, but desire or need additional training or resources to more effectively lead or advance her team.
Class starts on January 9, 2020 and meets monthly on the second Thursday of every month through December 2020. Class runs from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. Location TBD, based on enrollment.

Class meetings will combine time for peer networking, leadership development, and coaching. Course materials will reflect current events, the needs of the class participants, and the expertise of our faculty and guests. It is delivered in an interactive and engaging environment that uses discussion, activities, reflection, videos, and reading materials to engage every participant and drive powerful learning opportunities. Individual and group coaching, at every class meeting, will address current events and situational issues that participants are dealing with, while focusing on challenging the leaders and driving their individual growth.
Participants will create a Leadership Development Action Plan to establish personal and professional “success” goals, as well as identify the metrics through which we will quantify their leadership skill improvement and subsequent contributions to their organization.
