Arizona Foundation for Women is accepting participant and mentor applications through Sunday, Oct. 3, for its second annual She Leads! program.
The She Leads! program is crafted to repair the “Broken Rung” in the career ladder that often impairs women from reaching higher levels of management and leadership by developing women personally, professionally and philanthropically, according to a press release.
She Leads! is ideal for a woman looking to move into a leadership position, refresh her skillset, or gain formal training experience in leadership. Past graduates have represented industries from education, law, engineering, aviation, healthcare, journalism, law enforcement, finance, government, nonprofit and technology.
“As we saw during the pandemic, Arizona needs the type of leadership that can navigate challenges while keeping it one of the best places in the country to live and work,” said AFW CEO Mesha Davis. “Our She Leads! graduates have the confidence and skills to lead individuals of all backgrounds and in all sectors to achieve their best and tackle whatever comes their way. Situations like this past year’s prove just how vital this program is.”
AFW is continuing to process applications for She Leads! participants and mentors. Applications can be found at azfw.org/sheleads.
There are no prerequisites for applying. AFW actively seeks applicants from across Arizona.
Program sessions will be held in person in the Phoenix Metro area, subject to change given ongoing COVID-19 safety precautions.
