2022 Betsy Magness Graduate Institute (BMGI):

Creating Change Through Human-Centered Leadership

Registration now open for 2022! 

November 14-16, 2022
InterContinental Buckhead
Atlanta, GA


Created by The WICT Network and developed in partnership with top-ranking executive education institutes, the Betsy Magness Graduate Institute (BMGI) is designed anew annually to build upon the BMLI curriculum providing graduates with the latest tools, techniques and disciplines to hone their business strategies. All the while, the Graduate Institute allows participants to connect and reconnect with BMLI alumnae —a powerful B2B network.


From the Great Resignation and hybrid work norms to a renewed focus on racial justice and gender equity, organizations and leaders around the globe are navigating critical, day-to-day realities that demand more time and attention than ever before. With five generations working side-by-side in today’s workplace, understanding how to engage and retain employees has never been more critical.

The 2022 BMGI program and its focus on human-centered leadership is grounded in key principles of neuroscience and groundbreaking global research conducted by our faculty partners from the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL). Through an interactive, practical and experiential program, you will gain a deeper understanding of human-centered leadership. As a BMGI participant, you will:

  • Explore four core behaviors applied to real workplace challenges to build trust, fuel collaboration and enable better business outcomes.
  • Delve into what is required of future leaders, including the personal, interpersonal and societal barriers young professionals are facing when pursuing leadership positions.
  • Take away fresh recommendations and three strategies on how to design and provide emerging leaders with the meaningful and effective developmental opportunities they need to grow in today’s workplace.
