Women in Public Leadership Program

Chicago Harris launches executive education program for women in public leadership

The University of Chicago is launching a new executive education program, Women in Public Leadership, for women who want to break through the glass ceiling, increase their power and influence, and help make the world a better place.

The intensive five-day program, offered by the Harris School of Public Policy, brings together a faculty of distinguished academic scholars along with well-known women leaders who can offer battle-tested strategic advice on overcoming gender bias, building on success, recovering from failure, and taking your place in the public square.

WIPL’s faculty will be led by Chicago Harris Dean Daniel Diermeier and academic director Rebecca Sive, a noted advocate and speaker and author of Every Day is Election Day: A Woman's Guide to Winning Any Office, from the PTA to the White House.

The inaugural WIPL program will be held from Monday, Nov. 16 through Friday, Nov. 20, 2015 at the Harper Court Conference Center at 5235 S. Harper Court in Chicago, just blocks from the University of Chicago Hyde Park campus.

The course fee includes tuition for the certificate-granting program, books, curricular materials, meals and special events. Early bird, group and alumnae discounts available. Women who wish to join this inaugural cohort of exceptional leaders may learn more or register online at harris.uchicago.edu/women.
