“Emerging Leader” sessions are designed for the woman who wants to learn new management skills, build a network and be inspired by great leaders, Fabby said.
“Transitioning Leader” sessions will help women “define their passion, build confidence, expand their network and strengthen a leadership toolbox full of performance variables and skills needed to embark on a new journey,” Fabby said.
“Executive Leader” sessions will benefit the woman who values continuous growth, discovering new strategies, collaboration with peers and mentoring, Christian said.
