We are currently working on our Spring 2021 offering. If you're interested in being notified when that launches, please head here and we will be sure to get in touch!
Babson College’s Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership is pleased to offer the Babson Women’s Leadership Academy (BWLA), giving women-identifying high school students the opportunity to develop their personal leadership strengths, increase their confidence around communication, and build a plan to reach their goals.
Additionally, students will be able to start preparing for the college admissions process by writing a personal statement that can be used for the common application, learning more about the college admissions journey, and talking to current undergraduate women who can share their own college experiences.
BWLA high-school participants join the program with a wide range of goals that they'd like to begin working on. Whether they’re interested in running for student council, taking on a leadership position, looking for an internship, or want to start a business, the BWLA will give them a framework to map out what they want to achieve and a better sense of the skills and network they already have in order to get there, while pushing them to take at least two steps towards that goal.
This program has shown aspects of who I am that I have not seen before. I am more confident in coming out of my comfort zone and communicating with others. Thank you for all the wonderful guest speakers and peer mentors. I had a wonderful experience!
