Women Leaders Essential Skills Course

Essential Skills for Women's Leadership in Global Health 

Launched in Summer, 2021, this three credit, 1-week intensive course provided opportunities for emerging leaders to learn and practice critical leadership skills including self-assessment, self-awareness, active listening, communicating, and negotiation. This course encourages a solutions-oriented mindset via the development of individual and institutional strategies and utilizes case studies and discussion exercises that feature diverse organizational and societal contexts. 

We take an intersectional approach to leadership, recognizing that women leaders have many identities that influence their experiences with leadership.

From the course reviews: 

This is a fantastic course that was reassuring and inspiring when I apply it to my life and career. Kudos for setting the stage for an open, honest, and nonjudgmental forum. I loved the panel the last day as a wrap-up. The speakers brought tears to my eyes on multiple occasions. 

Ideas and leadership tools that have never been presented to me before were offered - deep self reflection was mandated, including the end product of a video. This was an exceptionally valuable assignment and I would hope this remains the final assignment of the class going forward. Examining the patriarchy, even including the request for salary history, was concretely elucidating. 

Highly engaging and makes you think very critically; I liked that the course made me feel empowered.
