Upcoming Public Events


The Women in Leadership (WIL) programs invite participants on a journey of integrated learning, including workshops, individual coaching sessions, panel discussionsHarrison Assesment, and more. The WIL programs aim to provide added leadership skills, accelerate participants' career and boost their confidence at critical stages of their career.

In addition to the 'gender lens', we also apply a 'cultural lens' to the leadership subjects as it is critical for today's business leaders. We are fully aware that gender equality can only be achieved with the inclusion of men, therefore we support the UN HeForShe campaign, and also include men in parts of the programs.

In order to assess the effectiveness of our initiative, we measure ROI the following way: In addition to the evaluation at the end of the workshops, we also collect feedback 3 and 6 months after the end of the program, from the participants as well as their sponsors or immediate bosses. We then feed back this information to the participating organisations.

PROGRAM 1: ACCELERATE - for EMERGING LEADERS, women with more than eight years work experience.
