Advancing Women In Leadership 
Advancing Women_Butler
Women continue to blaze the trail to advance to the top of organizations, currently holding about half of the country's managerial and professional jobs. While this is a dramatic increase from 20 years ago, women are still vastly underrepresented in the senior executive ranks.


As women navigate the path to higher management positions, they are challenged to define and develop their unique leadership style to enhance their effectiveness and impact in their organizations. Women must proactively manage their growth and development to prepare for the leadership roles they desire.


Through an action learning approach, Advancing Women in Leadership will help you uncover and integrate your unique strengths and qualities that will help you thrive and succeed in your current and future leadership roles.


Advancing Women in Leadership will be based in part on the Emotional Intelligence leadership methodology. To enhance real life learning, participants will participate in a variety of learning methodologies, including self-assessments, lecture, case study discussion, reflection, experiential and action-based role playing and peer coaching. Outcomes include 360-degree assessment, a personal leadership development plan and peer coaching skills.

Five Actions Against Stereotypes

 By: Maggie Anderson, IWL Director of Marketing


Throughout any given day, others see you and automatically create a generalized belief about who you are. Researchers from NYU found that we have seven seconds to make a first impression.


The advantage is that we can react quickly based on our own past experience, however the downside is the rapid judgments we make. We automatically group people together based on their looks, body language, hair color and other factors. In doing so, we ignore the differences in others, the parts of their being that make them unique and we assume characteristics that may not be true.


Stereotypes are an element of culture that affects everyone. Regardless of your race, sexual orientation, religion or gender, you are in some way impacted by these generalizations.


In our daily interactions, we often allow stereotypes to affect much of how we perceive others, how we interact with our counterparts and how we speak about other people. Not only are we subject to stereotyping, each of us play a role in sustaining and aiding these stereotypes.
