Created by The WICT Network and developed in partnership with top-ranking executive education institutes, the Betsy Magness Graduate Institute (BMGI) is designed 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 B2B network that is among the most powerful networks in all of business.

The BMGI program convenes leading experts to help The WICT Network design and develop an immersive learning experience. Leveraging the power of the BMLI community, the 2021 program featured facilitated discussions, panels, and group brainstorming to help reimagine the modern workforce as we emerge from the COVID pandemic.


  • Foster and strengthen the community of BMLI alumnae
  • Engage and reconnect with BMLI faculty
  • Cultivate a learning mindset for continued professional development and organizational impact
  • Deepen leadership purpose

In addition, the 2021 BMGI provided key takeaways, including—

  • Enabling risk-taking and courageous vulnerability
  • Clarifying boundaries and establishing trust
  • A new tool for inclusive group problem solving


  • Graduate of the Betsy Magness Leadership Institute


  • “So many takeaways, both professionally and personally.”
  • “I have the same spark and warm feelings I had from my first time with BMLI. This was worth the money and time. I look forward to this again next year. Thank you for helping me push the ‘reset’ button.”
  • “The session is a good recharge and a good reminder of leadership concepts I can always benefit from hearing again.”


A Look Back at the 2021 Program

2021: Reimagining the Modern Workforce

It is not often that we are provided an opportunity to reimagine how we live and how we work. Through experiential exercises, peer mentoring and data-driven presentations, the 2021 BMGI program created the space to do just that. With practical guidance for leaders, teams and organizations who are serious about success in the modern workforce, CCL senior faculty member Joanne Dias helped facilitate a deeper understanding of human centered leadership. Dias, along with other carefully selected subject matter experts, shared what is required of leaders today to develop the high-level of engagement and candor needed for businesses and teams to thrive. Akin to how we rethink the way we do business, BMGI also explored psychological safety and its foundational role in innovation, divergent thinking, creativity and risk-taking.
