Women Transforming Leadership Programme - ESC Grants

Outstanding opportunity to develop your career



About the Course

The Women Transforming Leadership Programme is an innovative executive education programme, established by the University of Oxford, to assist women in achieving their full career and leadership potential.

The course will take place from  2 to 6 October 2017 at the Said Business School in Oxford, UK.

Programme participants will be part of a global peer-group working in a wide range of sectors.

"Focus on your strengths, choose the leadership style that suits you best and “do what only you can do”. These and other lessons have stayed with me years after I attended this course. So, come forward and take this opportunity! Be prepared to engage, be courageous and don’t be afraid of being a leader – our success depends on you." Barbara Casadei, FESC - ESC President Elect 2016 - 2018
