New Executive Leadership Program for Women at Rutgers University

Rutgers,_The_State_University_of_New_Jersey_logoThe Center for Women and Work in the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers University in New Jersey, has announced the creation of an executive and professional education certificate program called Leadership Development for Early Career Women.

Leadership Development for Early Career Women is specifically designed for women who are three to five years into their career. Research shows this is the stage at which many women veer off a leadership track due to work-life concerns, perceived lack of fit, feelings of inadequacy, or other factors. To overcome these challenges and reach their full potential, participants will create a Personalized Leadership Development Plan that encompasses personal branding, awareness of workplace culture, work-life integration, and networking.

Karen_WhiteKaren White, director of the Working Families Program at the Center for Women and Work, stated that “working women are every bit as capable as men to achieve leadership positions at work and in their communities. This leadership program will not only provide women with the skills and resources to be a leader, but the motivation and self-awareness necessary to advance into leadership roles.”

More information on the program is available here.
