Women are underrepresented in leadership positions in the United States. In 2020, female workers accounted for 47% of entry-level positions, 38% of management roles, and 33% of senior management/director roles. Women were entrusted with under one-third (29%) of all vice president positions in American organizations.
As many of my readers know I have been teaching at the University of California Berkeley for the past seven years. For the past two years I have been teaching solely Effective Leadership and Management classes.
You can read more about me in this article Women in History Month where I was featured among other great women educators at Cal.
I will be teaching a local in person Women in Leadership Workshop on April 16th and virtually on April 19th. This workshop will focus on women and increasing their ability to lead. It is designed for women entering and re-entering the workforce, moving to the next level at work, and aspiring entrepreneurs.
My workshop is for women of all ages and disciplines. We need to take back our power.
In 2018 research published in the Harvard Business Review found that the average age at which a successful founder started their company is 45. That’s “among the top 0.1% of startups based on growth in their first five years,” according to the report. It is never too late to follow your dreams.
I will be hosting the first workshop in-person, April 16th in Lafayette from 10-12 and virtually, April 19th 7-9 pm. I also do one-on-one coaching.
Please join me. I look forward to seeing you all. Contact me at email@example.com for more information.
