  • How to project confidence, own your opinions and decisions, and speak up so people listen.
  • How to interrupt self-doubt, overcome imposter syndrome, and self-advocate with ease.
  • How to rise above the myths and stereotypes of gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, and generation to help navigate difficult moments and combat workplace bias.
  • How to use emotional intelligence to show up with curiosity and consideration for others’ perspectives, drive results, and manage stress and pressure.
  • How to effectively address micro-aggression and everyday slights rooted in bias.
  • Micro-presence missteps that could dilute women’s presence, with strategies to mitigate this.
  • What some practical tools and strategies are that allow women to play big, amplify other women’s voices, and practice ally-ship.

How Your Organization Will Benefit

From Our Women Leadership Training

Throughout the world across all sectors, women continue to be inadequately represented at every level of leadership. The report, Women in the Workplace 2019, compiled by McKinsey & Company and LeanIn.Org, acknowledges significant under-representation at each stratum and demonstrates the biggest obstacle women face happens early in the pipeline. To achieve gender parity within the ranks of senior leaders demands what the report identifies as “fixing this broken rung” that exists for women at the first step up to manager. Our Women in Leadership Masterclass offers an effective first step.

This masterclass is designed to:

  • Prepare women for roles of greater influence
  • Foster gender equity and inclusiveness 
  • Retain high-potential women and strengthen the leadership talent pipeline
  • Create measurable and lasting organizational impact

At Corporate Class, our expert facilitators provide women in leadership training through in-person and live online courses.
