The Woodhull Institute Young Women’s Ethical Leadership Core Training program has been developed to educate young women who exhibit leadership potential in their careers, community or family life. This core training program is designed to educate a small group of women in the practical skill sets that are so necessary to succeed in today’s businesses, political and community environments. Participants in this program will be presented with the concepts of ethical leadership; taught professional development skills; and be directed to networks, mentors and resources that can channel their leadership aspirations into practical and attainable achievements.
A team of Woodhull Professionals, Fellows, Associate Fellows and Scholars present basic empowerment skills that prepare young women for leadership roles in their communities and workplaces. The three-day or five-day retreat includes our core program modules: Ethics and Leadership Development, Public Speaking, Negotiation, Financial Literacy, Advocacy and Identity/Voice workshops. Ethical leadership retreats may also include additional modules such as ethical and effective writing, mentoring/networking and civic education based on faculty availability and Woodhull participant need assessment. Meditation, hiking, journaling and group discussions are encouraged.
Women, ages 21- 35, who are interested in increasing their capacity for professional and personal development through training workshops, group discussions and introspective work. This is a highly selective process.
