Meeting the challenges of today’s global workplace

Women face unique challenges in the workplace but they also add unique value and perspective. They shatter groupthink, improve communication dynamics, and reinvigorate companies in ways that make them more competitive. Research shows that companies with a critical mass of top-team gender diversity enjoy significantly better financial performance.

Women executives based internationally or who lead worldwide teams encounter specific dynamics and environments. The Yale School of Management and HEC Paris have therefore combined their expertise to develop a high-impact program to help rising leaders successfully overcome these challenges.

Participants will enhance their leadership behaviors and cross-cultural communication skills, learn how to create high-performing teams, understand how to use and manage networks, develop as thoughtful leaders, drive innovation, and create an authentic leadership style.


Watch replay of the "She Covery" online conference, produced during the December 2020, Paris edition, of the program.
