This program is for leaders at all levels
What can we learn from great women leaders throughout history and literature? How can yesterday’s female thought leaders and activists, including Queen Elizabeth I, Margaret Thatcher, and Sojourner Truth, illuminate the challenges and prejudices that women leaders must overcome today? In this four-week online program, we will analyze speeches to glean lessons relevant to women leaders today. Participants will:
- Discuss women's leadership dilemmas in history and literature.
- Analyze communication techniques of women leaders in history and the modern era.
- Develop strategies for employing language as a powerful tool.
