As part of the mission to challenge its community and inspire meaningful leadership, the School of Leadership Studies presents WOMEN LEAD, an initiative designed to educate and empower women, personally and professionally.

Through programs such as full-day conferences, presentations, workshops, and a new Certificate in Women's Leadership, WOMEN LEAD equips individuals and their organizations to support and encourage women's advancement.

Certificate in Women's Leadership

  • A 14-week online/on-campus program designed to support women's advancement in the workplace.
  • Anyone with 5 years work experience and/or an undergraduate degree can enroll directly. Enrollment is now open!
  • Approximate time commitment is 3-5 hours per week online. Additionally, for students who choose the fall cohort, there are required synchronous meetings throughout the fall semester, for approximately 2 hours every other week.
