Designed with successful female engineers who have witnessed firsthand how women stall at the mid-management level, Advancing Technical Women provokes, empowers and catalyzes high-potential women in technical and scientific positions to break through mid-career barriers and to rise to senior and leadership roles.
Participants learn how to:
- Become skilled advocates and agents for their careers
- Transform personal attributes and strengths into a recognizable “brand”
- Build strategic networks that improve visibility and promotability
- Secure and succeed at challenging ‘stretch’ assignments
- Improve communication skills and presence
- Develop an action plan empowering them to reach their career goals
Early-to-mid career women in scientific or technical fields from all industries, with approximately 5-10 years of experience, who want to advance their technical or management career paths. Advancing Technical Women is a 5 month learning journey anchored by a 1.5 day F2F experience, not a one time workshop
What should the participant expect?
- There are three phases in the Advancing Technical Women learning journey:
PHASE 1: PREPARE
Personal development on the CCL Digital Learning Platform; 1 month to complete virtual pre-course work in preparation for the program, approx. 1 hour/week
+ A self-reflection exercise provides a way to DIG IN and think about unique personal strengths by answering questions in several areas: values, passions, strengths, and goals.
+ Through informal peer feedback, participants GAIN INSIGHT and discover the kind of impact they have on colleagues, bosses, or direct reports.
+ Specifying intentions for the leadership journey highlights how the participant will STAND OUT.
PHASE 2: ENGAGE
Working with others for research-based experiential activities to develop the mindset, skillset, and toolset needed by technical leaders; 1.5 days face-to-face
+ Collaborate to assess social identities to define unique leadership attributes.
+ Articulate leadership brand or value proposition.
+ Receive feedback on the impact of communication.
+ Assess the participant’s portfolio of experiences to set goals for obtaining new ‘stretch’ assignments.
+ Analyze and strategically enhance the participant’s network to improve access to information, resources, and opportunities.
PHASE 3: APPLY
Translating learning into goals and actionable next steps to sustain new skills; 12 weeks of virtual work, approx. 1 hour/week
+ Meet virtually at least 3 times with their learning group to share ideas, gain clarity, and garner support for sustaining and revamping an Action Plan.
+ Access an online learning portal for application resources and support tailored to individual development needs.
+ Evaluate progress in a live 2-hour virtual training session and delineate next steps toward expanding impact.
