The Towson University Professional Leadership Program attracts women from across industry, government, and nonprofit sectors serving in a wide array of capacities within their organizations.

Program curriculum begins with the individual and emanates outward to colleagues, the organization, and the community. Each session has a specific focus but relates to four overarching themes.

  • Leading from the Inside Out—Enhance self-awareness and ability to speak from values and vision
  • Leading Through Collaboration—Explore ways to collaborate as a leader with a focus on results
  • Leading in a Dynamic Environment—Take on the challenges of change with power and confidence
  • Using Your Leadership Voice—Galvanize and engage others to achieve positive outcomes
