Women Entrepreneurs and Leaders Program
Empower – Accelerate – Disrupt
In North America and throughout the world, the glass ceiling persists. Despite a rise in women entrepreneurs and leaders, a significant gap exists. The Women Entrepreneurs and Leaders Program is a unique Innovation and Leadership program for seasoned women professionals worldwide. The program combines the expertise and complementary cultures of three globally renowned institutions, the McGill Executive Institute (McGill University), the CentraleSupélec Exed, a subsidiary of the European Engineering School CentraleSupélec (CS) as well as The Women Initiative Foundation (WIF), with its international experience in promoting women in business.
This program offers an immersive experience, aimed at developing your leadership competencies and accelerating you and your business. The six-day program connects women to a community and establishes a foundation for lifelong learning, growth and engagement. The program offers experiential learning opportunities, a wealth of knowledge from top faculty and researchers, personal development as well as networking opportunities. You will benefit from a small cohort of international leaders and entrepreneurs in an intimate setting on Montreal’s iconic McGill campus. You will spend a week engaged in lectures, fireside chats and cultural events where emerging skills are continually developed and applied.
Women will leave equipped with tools to manage complex projects in any industry or function. The program aims to propel women in business, help them develop long-lasting relationships and create a network of women who will continue to learn and support each other.
