Two years ago, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce launched Advance, a course specifically designed to empower and elevate women in the workplace. It was the Chamber’s way of addressing the gender gap in the C-suite and boardroom by providing emerging women leaders with the skills and confidence needed to break through to the executive level. Now under Chamber affiliate LEAD San Diego, Advance is a critical component in LEAD’s suite of five leadership programs, and has added new options for women participating in LEAD’s flagship programs who want to take their personal leadership to the highest levels.

Objectives:
1. Understand the need for your Leadership Program to take an active role in addressing the gender gap in the C-suite and Boardroom and how to make a compelling case to provide programming to meet this need.
2. Develop a program that provides emerging women leaders with the tools and confidence to advance their careers to the highest levels – and meets the needs of your unique constituents.
3. Ensure a successful debut of the program and by enrolling and leveraging your board, stakeholders, and alumni – and executing strategic, integrated marketing communications to create interest in and demand for your program.
