Mindy Schwartz and Kelly Shannon's Women's Leadership Program offered me the opportunity to become more comfortable communicating with and advocating for ideas with senior leadership.

I learned simple strategies to better utilize the time and attention from senior management. I also benefitted from becoming more direct in my approach.
