Introduction

Gender diversity promotes different perspectives in teams, and creates an inclusionary environment that’s more open to opportunities. It's also been proven to drive innovation and increase business performance.1 However, female professionals still face unique obstacles that restrict them from leading effectively.

The Women as Business Leaders online short course will enable you to gain insight into those challenges by reflecting on your own leadership style, and exploring shared-learning experiences to forge your own career path, fulfil your ambitions and be visible to the next generation of female business leaders. The combination of self-reflection, collaborative learning, and practical application offers a holistic and supportive platform for tackling an issue that affects industries around the globe.
