Women working in science, technology, and engineering are nearly 50% more likely than their male counterparts to drop out of the industry in their first year. Women face real barriers getting to the top, including isolation, bias, work-life integration, and a shortage of sponsors. Organizations that support emerging women leaders during this critical period of career growth understand the competitive value of investing in the development of this rich resource.
From Specialist to Strategist is a learning experience designed to equip emerging women leaders in science, technology, and engineering with the skills and confidence critical for future success in management roles. Sessions on strategy and innovation, negotiation, and self- and team-management unlock the skills women in STEM fields need to overcome obstacles, build successful careers, and advance to higher levels in the workplace.
Participants gain a network of true peers, other women at the same career-level in STEM fields, that helps to conquer feelings of isolation and provides access to career-spanning relationships with other emerging women leaders.
