A unique new program for women in leadership

"A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult. This 'voice' is your best tool in the boardroom." – Melinda Gates

UCI’s Women’s Leadership program is preparing women to find their voice and not just take a seat at the leadership table, but to leverage their unique skills to create and shape these tables. 

The Paul Merage School of Business has a long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion and is the number one business school in the world for percentage of female faculty (Financial Times MBA, 2019). From this perspective, the Office of Executive Education presents this unique new program for Women in Leadership.

This interactive program covers major topics including:

  • Negotiation Strategies
  • Financial Planning Designed for Women
  • Power Presence for Women
  • Cultivating Your Social Media Presence
  • Corporate Board Governance
  • High Quality Team Decision Making
  • Panel - Women on Boards: Maximize Your Impact
  • Panel - Women Supporting Women: How We Can Empower One Another

Recommended Audience

Program is designed for women seeking to advance their career through leadership, influence, communication and confidence. We invite professionals of all genders who support women.

Program Objectives

  • Provide women leaders with tools to build a consistently confident, credible and impactful personal leadership presence
  • Discuss the unique leadership skills women can employ and leverage to shape the future of organizational cultures
  • Create C-level panel discussions for open dialogue to address impactful topics including the recent California law mandating female representation on public company boards
  • Provide women leaders with exposure and networking opportunities to share ideas and strategies with participant peers, faculty, executive leadership coaches and C-level executives.
  • Create actionable plan for immediate practical application of key concepts
  • Form mini-affinity groups for long lasting, on-going peer coaching following the program

This program offers an intentionally small, intimate environment with a capacity of only 50 participants, therefore registering early is highly recommended.
