Next month, Temple University’s Center for Executive Education will launch the Women’s Leadership Series, a program designed to help women develop the skills they need to be successful business leaders.

Women who join the program will receive intensive instruction from experienced leaders and the opportunity to collaborate and network with other professionals in the Philadelphia region. They’ll also get the chance to double down on strengthening their communication and negotiation skills.

The goal? To empower women to advance to executive roles within their current organizations and beyond. And in the era of #MeToo, we can never have enough programs to support the advancement of women in their careers and lives overall.

According to organizers, the program is “ideal for women who are on the cusp of stepping into the role of director or above, and who have been identified as future leaders by their organizations.”

If you need some more help determining whether this program is for you, check out the lineup. The Fall 2018 schedule runs from September to February, with one three-hour session from 9:00AM-12:00PM per month.
