Introduction

According to Gallup, female managers regularly outperform their male counterparts but are still earning on average 38% less than men in the same position.

The professional challenges that women in business face are unique and often fueled by an unconscious gender bias in the workplace. You have the opportunity to overcome these hurdles for yourself and the women around you by developing practical strategies for leadership development.

The Women in Leadership online course from USB-ED will help you explore the core strengths of female business leadership and how it can be used to bolster the performance of your organisation. On successful completion you’ll also receive a certificate from Stellenbosch University, recognising your commitment to women leadership in the workplace.
