​Program Overview 

In a world that is increasingly unpredictable and uncertain, managers at organizations of all sizes need to possess entrepreneurial leadership skills in order to make a strategic impact. While an understanding of fundamental business disciplines is essential, it is no longer enough. Women's Leadership Program: From Opportunity to Action is a transformational five-day leadership development program for midcareer leaders who are moving into roles with increased strategic and leadership responsibilities. The program will act as an important guide for them to harness their existing strengths, build new competencies, and a renewed leadership identity that creates new levels of value for themselves and their organization. 

Program Objectives 

Women's Leadership Program: From Opportunity to Action is a unique personal leadership experience with emphasis on driving organizational performance by recognizing and building on strengths and engaging entrepreneurial thinking and behavior. Through the important transition into strategic and entrepreneurial leadership, participants gain a deep understanding of the interconnectivity between individual effectiveness and organizational outcomes, as well as the interplay between the leader’s influence and organizational performance. Participants bring back to their teams and their companies new tools, concepts, resources, and approaches for driving innovation and growth amidst often uncertain market conditions.


The program is led by a group of faculty who are distinguished academics, entrepreneurs, and practitioners.  They bring to the program a practical approach for driving improved individual and organizational performance. 
Educators for this program include Susan Duffy (faculty director),  Anne Donnellon, Elaine Eisenman, Susan Foley, Nan Langowitz, and Janelle Shubert.
