This unique educational program pairs leadership strategies with skills development for the essential, practical, personal competencies required of women to excel at leadership positions, including:

In addition to these core domains for success, the course covers diversity strategies for organizations to decrease the gap for women in healthcare leadership by:

Recruiting women managers or executives;
Developing the right support to advance and promote women once they are hired; and
Implementing strategies and policies that include representation of women on key committees and reviewing the track record on diversity inclusion in the organization.


The 2021 program has been enhanced for distance learning. In addition to being live streamed, all sessions will be recorded and made available to participants for online viewing for 90 days after the end of the course. This video archive will ensure that participants who live in different time zones or who have scheduling conflicts do not miss out on any sessions that are important to them. In addition, participants can review sessions that they watched during live streaming to reinforce key learning points.
