No matter your age, industry or past leadership experience, the Women’s Leadership Program (WLP) is ready to challenge and inspire you to advance your leadership skills. Join a statewide network of highly motivated, forward-thinking women who continue to make a difference across the state of North Dakota.

Participants learn from top leaders in their community and each other on how to:

  • Tackle adversity and challenges

  • Build confidence

  • Polish negotiation skills

  • Take risks

  • Build influence

  • Instill trust

  • And so much more!

Most importantly, participants discover how to step outside their comfort zone to achieve growth and success. Past graduates received top professional promotions, joined boards, pursued advanced degrees, started businesses, became mentors, and increased volunteerism and philanthropic efforts while making lasting connections.

What can you expect?

Session One - Leadership: Gain leadership skills by building a strong foundation of the fundamentals of leadership in personal, professional, community and health that will provide a solid basis of success for the upcoming sessions. 

Session Two - Personal Leadership: Maximize your personal leadership by learning to communicate and negotiate as a leader, focusing on your passion and learning to take risks. This session addresses personal leadership challenges and focuses on awareness, influence, and communication strategies to help you achieve your best.

Session Three - Community Leadership: Learn how and why to get involved and what it takes to lead with purpose. This session explores mentorship, commitment to society, and how to earn your place as a community leader.

Session Four - Professional Leadership: Develop a demand for your professional worth by enhancing your personal brand, advancing your professional skill sets, and become more efficient by learning when to ask for help and when to delegate. This session shows you not how to move up the ladder but how to create your own ladder to success.

Session Five - Health Leadership: Create a system for a healthy mind, body, and balance of career and family responsibilities. This session will examine lifestyle choices that overcome challenges to leading a healthy and productive life.

Session Six - Leadership Wrap Up: The final session of training will include discussion with fellow participants and guest speakers on women’s leadership. This session will help you identify ways to take what you have learned over the past six months and move forward with excellence.
