Why this program?
Women are significantly underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professions. Women leave these professions at twice the rate of their male colleagues. Retaining women in technical fields has become a national priority and a primary concern for employers.
The Leadership Lab for Women in STEM draws from more than a decade of research on what works to keep women engaged in STEM professions, and world-class practice in talent development.
This immersive experience is grounded in the pioneering research of Weatherhead’s renowned organizational behavior department. The Leadership Lab faculty members incorporate the concepts of:
- women in leadership,
- emotional intelligence, and
- competency-based leadership development
into a professional development curriculum specifically geared toward helping women thrive in STEM professions.
Develop the leadership and professional skills to thrive in your STEM career.
