The 2011 Women in Leadership Institute Announced – Program Will Feature New Format

June 28, 2011

In 2010, women made up 47 percent of the workforce, but only held 14 percent of executive officer positions at Fortune 500 companies and only three percent of chief executive officer positions. Over the next 12 years, 40 percent of leaders will leave the US workforce. Most organizations are not prepared for this transition and resulting talent shortage.

In response to alarming market trends on women in business, Linkage has changed the focus of its highly acclaimed Women in Leadership Summit to include a three-and-a-half-day world-class immersion learning experience featuring intensive training workshops on 10 critical leadership skills. The Women in Leadership InstituteTM  will be held November 13-16, 2011 at the Chicago Fairmont in Chicago, IL. Before the Institute begins, each participant will complete Linkage’s 360° Leadership Assessment Instrument (LAI), an assessment that measures the key skill sets proven to differentiate superior leaders. Once onsite, attendees will take part in peer coaching based on their assessment results, participate in training workshops, and apply their learnings through small peer group sessions lead by expert facilitators.

She has been widely credited with transforming Xerox, where she served as CEO for nearly a decade.  She is currently a Board Director of Johnson & Johnson, Target Corporation, The Washington Post Company and Chair of the Board of Trustees for Save the Children.
