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 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.
