About Executive Women in Leadership

In this certificate, you will learn strategies and techniques to skillfully level the playing field as you work to attain higher levels of leadership. You will begin with an evaluation of the gender bias and power dynamics present in your organizations and develop strategies to overcome their limiting effects. Next, you will assess and refine the way you present yourself as an executive. Leaders often have to negotiate on behalf of themselves, their teams, and their institutions, so students will explore ways to prepare for the challenges women face in negotiations and adapt their negotiation style to the context of a given situation.

About Women in Leadership

This certificate positions women who are in leadership positions to recognize when there is a gender dimension at work and how they can out strategize gender bias and their own habits to achieve better results.
