THREE-PART WEBINAR SERIES

Healthy Female Leadership—An Integrated Approach to Help Women in the Workplace Thrive

There has been very little movement over the past 10 years in getting women into leadership at all levels. And yet, there is a big push to have work environments that honor diversity/inclusion. Why aren’t we seeing more progress? Why are women in the workplace burning out?

This three-part webinar series—offered in collaboration with Global Women 4 Wellbeing (GW4W)—addresses three of the pieces of the overall “puzzle” that uniquely impact women in the workplace and how we need to start to look at them as interconnected, not separate, issues. On each of the three webinars, you’ll hear from top female leaders who will share both their personal and professional experiences and some of the ways we can help more women become healthy leaders, for themselves, in their communities, and in their corporations.

Individuals are encouraged to attend all three webinars, but may attend individual webinars if desired. Each webinar in the series requires separate registration, and all registrants receive access to the webinar recording. Continuing education credit is available for participation in the live webinars.
