Who should attend:

EDS is for mid-career professionals who aspire to advance to the VP level and beyond. It is an ideal stepping stone in-between WICT’s Rising Leaders Program and the Betsy Magness Leadership Institute (BMLI).

  • Did you know more than 25% of EDS attendees go on to participate in WICT’s flagship program, BMLI?

Here’s what your peers told us after experiencing the power of EDS:

  • “The instructors were phenomenal. I learned the importance of self discovery and how that links to leading authentically.”
  • “This course is invaluable and should be mandatory for emerging women leaders.”
  • “Every bit of information and knowledge gained will be applied in some aspect of my life.”
  • “Life changing. Exactly what I needed at this point in my career.”

Key takeaways:

  • Incorporate a new sense of self-awareness into your leadership development plan.
  • Identify your key values and patterns of success that are compatible with your work style.
  • Align your priorities with work behaviors.
  • Build a strong support system for professional and personal resiliency.

A panel discussion, integrated into the learning experience, will address personal and professional journeys of industry leaders. While touching on the current state of the industry and expectations for the future, panelists will also share personal insights into the skills required for overcoming obstacles to achieve success in the workplace.

On the final day, you will develop a tailored action plan that draws upon what you learned from the program’s lectures, group exercises, peer feedback and deeply personal reflection.
