Programs for Women

Increased gender diversity in leadership and management has the power to advance both the organization and its people. Improved communication dynamics, innovative thinking, and productivity: women’s unique values and perspectives deliver benefits that cascade throughout organizations.

What began as a single program, the Women’s Leadership Program, at Yale Executive Education has blossomed into a vibrant, ever-growing selection of executive development opportunities for women. There are options for those new to senior management or those seeking to advance and increase their influence; options for those seeking an on-campus experience or a program online.
