Enhancing Leadership for Women

When Women Flourish, Mindsets Change and Silos are Broken Down

Support, growth and development are essential for all leaders, but gendered differences create unique opportunities and challenges for women. This course builds skills and mindsets to succeed, and creates a platform for you to engage with a network of peers and senior mentors. You will develop confidence, influence and effective leadership strategies.

Who Should Attend?

Female professionals who are mid-career and seek to deepen their understanding and skills to enhance their leadership potential.

Why Do We Need This Course?

An excerpt from a blog post by Ambassador Christian Dussey, Director of the GCSP:

We know that women are leaders of communities, teams, organisations and governments. Indeed, for successful decision-making, innovation, and financial outcomes we need women in senior roles to increase collective intelligence and reduce groupthink. However, we also know that currently zero out of 22 UN agencies in Geneva are led by women; one out of 15 Permanent Representatives to the Security Council are women; just four percent of CEOs are women and worldwide the average representation in Parliaments is 23%. There are barriers to women’s successful career progression and they include insufficient role models, social stereotypes, individual and systemic biases; problems that require more effective policies, processes and training for women and men. As male and female leaders, we need to be pro-active in creating a more inclusive, supportive culture.
