Attended: Directing Innovation

“How refreshing to be around so many women leaders. We have a lot to learn from each other! The Directing Innovation program had an immediate impact on my work in that I was able to much better articulate my ideas for how to develop and execute our vision. It also reminded me to support emerging women, which has already helped me identify and develop new talent. Outside of work, the program energized me and inspired me personally to develop more relationships with women leaders in my field. The Smith program is unique from other leadership programs I have attended in that the faculty is stellar – so diverse, and all are outstanding in their fields of expertise, but also very approachable. To me, Smith College Executive Education’s is best described as strong, innovative and visionary. The Directing Innovation program was a unique experience that provided excellent leadership topics combined with outstanding faculty and a networking opportunity. This combination not only enhances my corporation’s goals for developing women, but also is a major energizing force for the attendees. At Smith I was empowered, energized and engaged.”
