Professional Development from Cornell University

cornell_logo-3Women’s contribution to the economy, in general, has never been put into a greater focus until recently.

According to a report of McKinsey Global Institute featured in a news article by CNN, it estimates that economies in the Asia-Pacific region could boost their collective GDP by $4.5 trillion by 2025 if they improve gender equality.

However, women in many countries in the Asia Pacific face vastly unequal treatment at work and in society compared with men. It further stressed that “From an economic perspective, trying to grow without enabling the full potential of women is like fighting with one hand tied behind one’s back”.

Understanding the significant impact of women’s contribution and the need to assert her role and take a seat at the table, eCornell, Cornell University’s online professional executive education specifically designed Women in Leadership certificate. It examines the issues facing women in leadership positions and offers strategies for handling them. The Women in Leadership program include how women can best negotiate in the workplace, ways to effectively provide both positive and negative feedback and how they can strengthen their emotional intelligence to stand out as a leader among both men and women.

In collaboration between FEW and Genashtim, the exclusive partner of eCornell outside North America, FEW members and affiliates can now avail any of the eCornell course or certificate and enjoy 30% discount.
