TAKING THE STAGE®

The ability to speak with clarity and conviction is critical for all leaders, regardless of their gender. Yet, women continue to face obstacles in the workplace that can undermine their desire and ability to speak and be heard as leaders. Taking the Stage® supports your organization’s diversity and inclusion strategies by creating a purpose-built space for women to come together and discuss the specific challenges they face, while building leadership skills. Participants will explore how gender norms have shaped and continue to shape ideas about leadership and communication styles. They’ll think critically about the leadership identity they want to create. And they'll practice using a simple, structured methodology designed to unleash their authentic conviction and presence.

The learning is led by The Humphrey Group’s own roster of inspiring women and the sharing of experiences and challenges is central to the learning experience. Taking the Stage is an inclusive program open to all women-identifying people.

Key Learning Outcomes

Taking the Stage empowers women-identifying leaders with the knowledge and tools to:

  • Embrace and communicate a leadership identity
