PURCHASE, N.Y. -- The Women’s Leadership Institute at Manhattanville College’s School of Business is offering a six-session Women’s Leadership Certificate Program this fall and winter to help women in metropolitan New York thrive in today’s competitive business environment.
“The goal of this energetic certificate program, through a series of interconnected workshops, is to inspire women leaders to think strategically, hone business and financial acumen, productively lead organizations, communicate across differences, improve skills in negotiation and situational influence and establish an executive presence,” said Kathryn Meany, director of the Women’s Leadership Institute.
“The certificate program can be especially beneficial to midlevel female professionals with leadership aspirations,” she said.
The academic and action-learning sessions, facilitated by Manhattanville School of Business faculty members, who have a wealth of professional experience and knowledge, will conclude with a unique benefit: Each participant will receive post-program coaching by an executive coach (a Manhattanville faculty member) to ensure the successful transfer of skills when participants return to their business roles.
The six “Lead With Distinction” 1.5-day sessions will begin with orientation Thursday, Sept. 24, and run through January. The workshops will be held on the Manhattanville College campus.

Other unique aspects of the program include “cohort assignments” in which participants form smaller groups to work on assignments and tasks, and a “capstone” project that will weave all six modular topics together, with a final presentation culminating the program in January.
The School of Business at Manhattanville College launched the Women’s Leadership Institute this year to provide women with the skills and resources needed to succeed in the workplace, as well as create a place where women can collaborate, allowing them to develop their own unique presence in the executive suite.
