The program exposed me to new ways of approaching, interpreting and responding to various leadership styles. It helped clarify my leadership strengths, tendencies, preferences and challenges. The program provided me with clarity and confidence to move forward, be more effective and to challenge myself to grow. I loved every minute of it - even the 'real plays' that I was petrified about! They were fantastic and run so well on all levels.

The Women's Leadership Program was stimulating, practical and inspiring and has already proven to be useful for me back in the workplace. I think there was a good balance of participation versus learning from the speakers - and just the right amount of group activities! The resources provided helpful, especially the recommendation to make notes in a journal through the course to refer to later. I have done that and am surprised by how relevant it has been to actual work practices.
