How to apply?
Smith Executive Education for Women is not like other executive education programs that have open enrollment and a widely varied range of experience and levels in the same classroom.
If you’re charged with developing women leaders at your firm, call us to learn more about all of our programs and how they can complement other strategic leadership efforts or target specific groups. We’ve helped major corporations from Johnson & Johnson to Caterpillar enhance and expand their women’s leadership development programs and we’d be happy to do the same for you!
If you’re an individual woman interested in attending a Smith Executive Education program but don’t have corporate sponsorship, give us a call! We’d be happy to work with you to develop support in your company – we may even know the right people to talk to. And if we don’t, we’re happy to speak to whoever you identify as the right people to explore and develop support for your leadership journey.
Our programs are carefully crafted for high-potential women with each curriculum artfully designed to meet specific learning and development goals for women at various career stages and in varied fields. Our program for emerging managers in technology and engineering differs dramatically from our program for women running global companies, just as our program for senior women in engineering differs from our program for women on career paths in biopharma. One size does not fit all!
That’s why we work very closely with our partner corporations – a constantly growing list! – and their corporate learning and development officers, talent management teams, and women’s leadership initiatives to identify the right program for the right women. Many companies send teams of women in order to build their leadership pipeline and take advantage of significant cost savings. Once a company sends us the names and contact information of the women tapped to attend a Smith program, we’re in touch with them directly with detailed information about the program and on how to access our convenient online registration process.
