This online workshop is designed specifically for company representatives who are interested in creating, designing, developing, or restructuring women’s networks, groups, programs, and/or other initiatives in their organizations. Current and future leaders of women’s groups/networks and corporate leaders involved in these strategic initiatives are invited to participate. Based on the latest research, Dr. Madsen will teach attendees about the types of efforts, programs, and designs that have showed to be effective in supporting and advancing women in workplace settings. The morning will consist of engaging presentations, small group conversations, and individual activities.

This workshop was offered initially over two years ago. Content has been updated and expanded to provide the most recent research and best practices available for companies. It will include more detail on effectively designing employee resource groups (ERGs) for women.
