The Executive Leadership Institute for Women is a year-long program designed to provide senior women leaders with a comprehensive understanding of the principles and practical skills necessary to achieve leadership excellence.

Now running in 8 cities across the country, the program is going into its eleventh year and utilizes a combination of four (4) half-day classroom sessions with monthly virtual discussions in small cohort groups to reinforce leadership skills, knowledge and to discuss the practical application of leadership principles to each participant’s specific work situation.

Rowe Price and many more.

The ELIW was a wonderful professional development opportunity. It provided a nice balance of content learning with practical reinforcement within our cohort groups. The experience instilled a confidence in me that was underutilized. It reinforced that most women have similar challenges in the workplace regardless of level and experience. The knowledge I gained on influencing styles has already benefited me with my strategic relationships. But above all, I learned one of the keys to long-term success is the power of resiliency. We had the opportunity to create our resiliency plan, which is now a part of my life. I was honored to be a part of the program.

The seasoned Leader’s Edge facilitators create a learning environment that encourages participants to openly share their personal and professional experiences which was an effective method for me to evaluate and refine my own communication and leadership styles.  I also found the opportunity to network with a group of highly talented senior executive women from diverse industries extremely motivational.  I know I will continue to actively engage with many of the participants I met through the KPMG Executive Leadership Institute for Women and I would encourage any woman who wants to advance their career, as well as strengthen their effectiveness in the work environment, to participate in this forum.
