JACKSON, MI — Dawn Foods, a global leader in bakery ingredients, manufacturing and distribution, has unveiled a new leadership program to empower the women in its professional network to grow, feel supported and find community. 

The Women’s Leadership Development Program (WLDP) is led by Felisa Stockwell, senior director of global people and culture, and Osvaldo Santos, LATAM senior director of people. The program is an 18-month commitment that partners with the training group Linkage to create more opportunities for development and growth for women in the baking industry. It’s structured to give women throughout leadership ranks at Dawn access and visibility and set them up with the capabilities and experiences they need to climb the ladder of success. 

“We wanted a program that was going to be quite comprehensive and robust, something that was really going to help accelerate the development of women,” Stockwell said. “Linkage is a leader in development and offers programming that has identified hurdles to advancement for women, competencies to overcome them, and an individual 360-degree assessment that is used to focus development.”
