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.
