Women In Leadership Programs

Out of 500 Fortune 500 companies, precisely three are led by women of color. Hardly better, only 37 have women CEOs of any race. And these problems are replicated throughout leadership at every level.

As women across the globe continue to face challenges and obstacles holding them back from leadership roles, Antioch University is launching a new online Women in Leadership Certificate Program to help women overcome those challenges.

“Women’s experiences in the workplace can be dramatically different, yet with these differences, there are also similarities we all experience as women,” says the program’s director, Dr. Jacqueline Reid. “This program hopes to provide opportunities to understand the barriers women face—but also to share practical, actionable strategies to overcome these barriers.”

The goal for this program is to bring together early- and mid-career women who are clearly aware of the professional challenges that they face—and to provide these women opportunities to enhance their confidence and leadership skills within a social justice framework. This program will bring together women experts working in nonprofits, business, government, higher education, human resources, diversity/equity training, public speaking, and beyond.

Over three months, meeting two weekends a month, participants will engage in hands-on experiences and develop practical skills to navigate the workplace and elicit change in the community. Jacqueline Reid, PhD. Program Director

Rules of Engagement: Making Connections Last by Dr. Froswa’ Booker-Drew

During this time of COVID, there is such a focus on social distancing when we really should change our language to physical distancing. Relationships are critical and this workshop will address the power of our narratives and how they impact our relationships with self and others. As leaders, it is imperative that we build and leverage our networks for personal and professional success. It is also important that in managing others, we begin to understand their narratives, the assets that exist within ourselves and our team, and ways that we can mobilize these resources for growth and success.
