A dynamic combination of lecture, discussion, assessments, and workshops, the Emerging Leaders Program goes beyond traditional management training to include strategies to overcome challenges and leverage strengths for women in business.
The program spans 12 months with a total of 24 hours of intense training delivered in monthly 2-hour meetings for feedback and reinforcement of lessons
Participants better learn how to make strategic decisions, sharpen their business acumen, and strengthen their leadership competencies
Participants receive the Lumina Spark Assessment: A 40-page profile outlining strengths, leadership personas, and developmental areas. These principles are reinforced throughout the year to help participants better understand themselves, read their peers and leadership, and develop tactics for communicating and navigating their organizations more effectively
We emphasize developing business acumen, change management, managing difficult situations or people, and crafting and managing their personal brand to chart their own professional path as they rise through the ranks
EWF’s Emerging Leaders Program is designed for ambitious women just like you in their early-and mid-career. It is the perfect program for you if you’ve asked yourself one of these questions:
I know I can do more. How do I work toward and negotiate a promotion, new opportunity, or higher salary?
How can I step up to leadership positions?
Where can I get the tools to better navigate politics and be more strategic and successful with my career?
The program consists of a 2-hour, interactive learning session a month for twelve months, plus bridgework that includes additional resources and exercises to support mastery. We also encourage participants to connect with the class leaders and each other in 1:1s throughout the year. Participants report they spend a few hours a month working on bridgework and networking outside class.

Cost includes all required course materials for sessions, Lumina Spark® psychometric assessment, and breakfast (if applicable).

“I think the best part of this program is that it’s given me dedicated time to focus exclusively on my career advancement, outside the noise of the day-to-day at work, and with two kids – it can be crazy. This is a great tool for a woman who has a busy schedule but still wants to advance her career – it’s a worthwhile investment.”
Crystal Shin, Director of Business Development, Goldin Peiser & Peiser

“It’s such a great experience to be in a group of supportive women all helping each other advance their careers. It’s really giving the language to more effectively talk to my upper management as well as be a more effective leader with my staff. What I’m learning is helping me not only with my career progression, but in my personal life as well.”
