EDUCATE

Learn through training catered to your career level.

Each quarter is designed to build out from a theme aligned with what our members tell us they need to learn more about. We start each quarter with a Leadership Luncheon (LL) keynote speaker. Then we dive deeper into the topic through 3 tiered Leadership Studies (LS). You pick your comfort level with the topic (beginning (LS1), middle (LS2), advanced (LS3). If you’re ready for something more intensive, discover one of our Leadership Tracks (LT) where you will be challenged with real-life leadership application.

Research

As an institute, it is important that our model be driven by research. We conduct internal and external research and collect from regional and national resources to inform our program curriculum. All objectives point back to evidence-based best practices for cultivating female leaders who shape culture.

Leadership Luncheons

Each quarter begins with a luncheon that features community, business, civic, or political leaders presenting information related to business and leadership. Register through our calendar.

Leadership Luncheons will return in 2021 once we can safely gather.

Leadership Studies

Each quarter you will be able to engage at a deeper level with the content presented over the course of 3 months. Our Studies are designed to offer beginning, middle and advanced content around a given quarterly theme.

As you identify your level of expertise, our presenters are here to challenge you in LS 1, LS 2, or LS 3 courses. 12 per year. Check out our calendar for future Studies. Register for our upcoming Study below.

March Leadership Study

About the session

How actively present are you as you go about your day? This is an interesting question to ponder but the power of being actively present has been utilized by top performers for years. Mental fortitude, tactical presence, and the ability to bring it no matter where you are, is important for life and leadership. Letting go of your perfection can open you up to authentic humanism.
