Since its inception in 2009, over 760 women (known as “ambassadors”) have participated in the program, providing a robust community of female professionals to enhance each participant’s network.
The Power of the Leading Women Executives Network
My relationship with my advocate was a key part of my overall positive experience with the Leading Women Executives program. I gained new perspectives on our executive committee’s operating model, which helped me tremendously as I later prepared for my new role on that team. I also gained tremendous confidence and a level of self-awareness that I didn’t previously have, thanks to my advocate’s support and insight. He showed me how my skills were uniquely valuable, in ways that I hadn’t realized and had taken for granted given my long tenure at our firm. I am looking forward to giving back as an advocate for future Leading Women Executives participants from our firm!
