“From the start, the Women’s Leadership Certificate program, including the mind-blowing, on-campus immersion, has been one of the most powerful experiences that I have been through. I, along with my fellow colleagues, have been empowered with immediately usable tools, a strong network of support in like-minded-thinkers, and many “a-ha moments” that have resonated deeply. With high expectations after a stellar experience in Gonzaga’s Organizational Leadership graduate program, I can certainly say that Rachelle and Sherri have knocked this one out of the park. Our first cohort is already reveling in excitement for the next immersion!”

“I was hesitant to apply for this certificate class; the University’s prestige and list of alumni were intimidating. I was afraid of attending a class full of PhD and MBA educated women; although there may be few of those women in class, the diversity in education levels, generations, ethnic backgrounds and professions is incredible. I have learned so many strategies from the other women and the instructors. I feel like I’ve filled my tool bag and can get to work on my leadership skills.”

“The certificate in Women's Leadership program at Gonzaga provided in-depth and relevant tools to challenge me to grow as an individual and leader. Our cohort included an active, engaged and diverse group of individuals with a growth mindset. Much of the value to this well-organized program was the amount we learned from each other. I have enjoyed the fusion of online and on-campus in-person learning, with a tremendous variety of ideas and perspectives, as well as assignments through reading, discussion, videos, and creative projects.”
