Leadership Institute

Leadership Institute for Women in STEM and Manufacturing is an executive education program focused on issues pertinent to women leaders working in male-dominated fields. The 3-month program is offered in partnership with Case Western Reserve University where participants learn from world-class professors and coaches, participate in ESCI 360 evaluation, build strong relationships with peers, and develop core executive leadership skills. This is a hybrid program with virtual engagement as well as an in-person workshop in Cleveland, Ohio.
