Course description

Women's Leadership Development Certificate

Over the past several decades, women have made significant progress in academic achievements as well as their representation in the paid workforce. Despite this progress, women are vastly underrepresented in the top leadership positions across all industries and organizations, and a persistent earnings gap exists.

In keeping with its mission to foster women’s advancement, The Anne Welsh McNulty Institute for Women's Leadership, in partnership with the College of Professional Studies, created a leadership development certificate (non-credit) geared towards “women in the middle.” The program builds on the participants’ experiences and interests to develop their leadership skills, and form their own unique path to leadership.
