Women play key roles in the hospitality and meeting industries, but many find it challenging to move into leadership positions. In fact, recent studies show that women are 28% less likely to get an executive-level position if they possess the skills that make other job applicants attractive candidates for CEO, COO, CMO and CFO positions. In this four-hour course, we’ll examine why this is, what you can do about it and help you create a personal action plan to overcome some of the common career obstacles women face.

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe which skills help women ascend to executive leadership roles in this industry (and beyond).
  • Identify methods for overcoming common challenges women face in obtaining leadership opportunities.
  • Create a personal action plan for leadership success.
  • Locate additional resources available to women seeking leadership roles in the meeting and event industry.

Participants of this course receive:
  • 4 clock hours in CMP-IS Strategic Domain E: Human Resources; Domain F: Stakeholder Management
  • Access code for Clifton StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment
  • Individual Development Plan worksheets to create a personalized action plan
  • Peer-to-peer mentoring
  • Certificate in Executive Leadership Skills

Course overview
  • Module 1: Executive Leaders Around the World and in the Meetings and Events Industry
  • Module 2: Challenges and Solutions
  • Module 3: Creating Your Personal Action Plan
  • Module 4: Resources for Further Development

Please note, some pre-work is required for this course (skills assessment, light reading and worksheet). These materials will be emailed to participants.
