    Throughout the course of the program, participants will delve into multiple areas such as leading during change and difficult situations, understanding the woman’s perspective in business, achieving a work-life balance, overcoming cultural biases and stereotypes, understanding change dynamics, adopting an agile mentality, becoming more empowered and engaged, sharpening their leadership skills and amplifying work goals through effectively managing and developing their teams.
