Upon completion of the Intensive Program, ongoing support for women and their leaders is available. Quarterly sessions are offered for continuing skills and competency development. Discussion groups are offered for women and their leaders. Ongoing executive coaching and peer coaching is available to support organizational change.

Leading Provider

For over 60 years, ERC has been a leading provider of talent development strategies for leaders across the globe. ERC understands that there are many one-day classes and conferences focused on women’s leadership development. While these provide great ideas for women, no other offering provides an institute dedicated to women’s leadership development with the resources to provide ongoing support and updated, proven strategies.
