The EmBe Women’s Leadership Program focuses on discovering your power, activating your vision, and connecting with your community while utilizing the personal experiences and skills of area leaders to educate and inspire. Through the program, each participant will create a Leadership Creativity Project that empowers them to meet personal and professional goals.

Your leadership journey will not be a lonely one. Whether it’s the C-Suite, public office, or a loving home, your leadership vision is just as purposeful as you are powerful. In addition, you’ll curate a lifetime of support with a class of peers, a mentorship match, and join a network of hundreds of Women’s Leadership Program alumni.

This immersive course welcomes all women seeking development opportunities in their personal and professional lives. While every class is just as unique as each woman’s experiences, you’ll find a proven structure and ample support on your journey to your best self!

Class Size: 25
Cost: $1,000 plus applicable tax and a $40 non-refundable application fee.
