Boston – October 29, 2019 – Online learning destination Skye Learning today announced a new Certificate in Leadership for Women in Business. This 30-hour certificate program explores both the social and psychological mechanisms that create challenges that professional women often face in the workforce. Providing concrete and data-driven recommendations for overcoming those obstacles, the certificate offers valuable experiential commentary from women leaders in industries such as marketing, healthcare, nonprofit management, and sports management.
“According to Pew’s 2018 data on women leaders, the percentage of women CEOs is decreasing, despite women being more educated than ever. It’s this incongruity that exposes the need to strengthen and equip women with the practical and contextual leadership skills needed in today’s business landscape,” said Sandy Slager, president of Skye Learning. “Our new certificate is specifically designed to empower women leaders with real-world techniques and tools to embrace leadership skills for today’s rapidly evolving workforce.”
Each course offers a combination of relevant reading materials, video segments with women executives, case studies, and an “Ask the Expert” feature that directly connects learners to other women executives. The current course list includes:
- Topics in Leadership for Women
- Topics in Management for Women
- Networking and Mentorship
- Communication for Women in Business
- Body Language for Women in Business
- Negotiation for Women in Business
- Navigating Work-Life Balance
The certificate also includes an awareness course, which assesses the representation of women in various domains, including sports, politics, education, healthcare, STEM fields, and managerial positions. The course reviews challenges that many working women encounter, making it a necessary prerequisite for any business leader, of any gender, seeking to make decisions that will not exacerbate those issues.
