Exclusive for Columbia Alumnae: Scholarship for Women in Leadership Program

January 03, 2019

We are delighted to announce that the Columbia Global Centers|Santiago will be financing four scholarships for the Women in Leadership program offered by the Executive Education division at Columbia Business School that will take place in New York on June 18-20, 2019.

These scholarships will cover tuition and roundtrip airfare. They are targeted only to Columbia alumnae living in Chile that are working in academia, non-for-profits (think-tanks, foundations, NGOs), government, international organizations, media outlets and start-ups.

Participants will learn time-tested techniques and practical ideas which women can apply immediately to their career and that can help combat performance-limiting biases. They will network with likeminded colleagues, and learn applicable skills for an immediate impact on their career and organizations.

 During this three-day program, participants will learn how to: 

  • Articulate their vision and action plan for personal leadership
  • Advocate for themselves, their team, and their collective ideas
  • Establish strategic networks and leverage them in their career
  • Engage supporters through compelling communications
  • Overcome challenges to their visibility and authority
  • Negotiate favorable outcomes and manage conflict

We are enclosing the brochure of the program and the agenda of the November 2018 version.
