Designed for emerging and established female leaders


Elevating Women in Leadership is a transformational leadership program designed exclusively for women to reflect, connect, and make choices about their impact. Program insights have been gleaned through years of work with Global, Canadian and US Fortune 500 companies. World-class development is combined with contemporary gender diversity research, resulting in acquisition of the skills needed for success in the context of female leadership.

Both established and emerging female leaders gain new insight into their performance, influence, and potential.  They articulate a comprehensive leadership vision, a plan to develop resilience and boundaries, and work toward the mindset to achieve their leadership goals.

Elevating Women in Leadership was developed by KBRS global partners at LHH, Canada’s leading human capital company, internationally recognized as one of the world's best leadership providers.
