McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas is debuting their Women Who Mean Business program to address the national decline of women in the workforce.
The six-month leadership development program is designed to help equip high-achieving women with the tools and mentorship needed to navigate rapid career acceleration.
The program will be led by two Texas female CEOs, Gay Gaddis and Lynn Utter. Gaddis, the founder of T3 advertising agency and author of Cowgirl Power, brings an entrepreneurial lens, and Utter, a serial C-suite executive, looks at advancement and the critical needs of businesswomen within a corporate environment.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the pandemic has forced 2.5 million women to leave the workforce and confirms that women are three times more likely to sacrifice their careers for family.
Women will be able to take this program and have the opportunity to take courses in an immersive curriculum and mentorship, teaching women how to find their unique leadership style, sharpen their personal decision making skills, improve their communication and negotiation abilities and more.
