Impact. Connection. Courage.

Executive Education for Women is an extension of Wellesley’s mission and true to the heart of who we are. 

Built upon a foundation of personal reflection and mindfulness, our executive education model taps into the power that exists within each of us by identifying and cultivating critical leadership skills and behaviors. By applying a liberal arts lens to the practice of leadership, our approach integrates communication strategies, critical thinking, data-driven decision-making, and intentionality.
