Attending WELD programs and events provides leadership development opportunities for women at all levels of their organizations and women business owners. Women who are just embarking on their careers can find learning opportunities and begin building their networks women who are at the mid-career level will find participation in WELD a perfect avenue for seeking strategies to become even more effective leaders in order to advance to the C-suite. WELD’s leadership programs offer women entrepreneurs business building networking opportunities, help them focus on their own leadership development, and provide leadership development ideas they can implement with associates in their companies. And, women and men desiring to pay it forward can do so by mentoring and sharing their stories of professional growth and success by serving as speakers at our events.

Leadership Series

Each year, WELD chooses a specific leadership theme to form its strategic platform for the year.  Our Leadership Series and other events will be designed around this theme in a holistic fashion that allows depth of coverage and reinforcement of skill building.  There are two types of programs:

New and Renewing Member Breakfasts: These events are for members only and provide an excellent overview of WELD and how to get involved. Specialty topics will be presented as part of the agenda so that attendees can experience the WELD programming format and build their leadership competencies.

WELD Leadership Series: WELD Leadership programs focus on the core leadership competencies that support the strategic theme for the year and are ideal for those who are in the early to mid-career levels. They provide a perfect opportunity for executive level women and men in our community to increase their own visibility and impact by serving as guest speakers. These meetings are open to members and non-members alike.

Our Leadership Series programs provide great opportunities for participants to build new relationships in the community and engage in potential business building discussions while investing time in their leadership development.

Executive Women's Series

When women reach the highest levels of leadership in organizations in sufficient numbers, research shows that these organizations significantly financially outperform organizations with fewer or no women in top leadership. Moreover, these same companies with more women in top leadership also give back more philanthropically to their communities than companies with fewer or no women in top leadership.

The Executive Women's Series focuses on the leadership development needs of the executive women of our corporate members. The target audience also includes partners/managing partners in professional services organizations, physicians, and other senior level women of our corporate members. The attendees need not be the named individual membership holders for the membership slots that come with our corporate members, but they must be at the executive level.

Executive women of our corporate members attend this event for free. The events are typically hosted by corporate members who desire to volunteer their hospitality to our membership base. Attendance at this event is typically by invitation only to ensure the appropriate level of audience and provides great relationship building opportunities for executive women to meet their peers at other companies.

Corporate Board Training

A wealth of studies shows that when corporate boards include three or more women on them, these companies financially outperform those companies with fewer or no women on their boards. In addition, companies with more women on their boards give back more philanthropically to their communities.  Therefore, it is vitally important for companies to make inclusion of women on their boards a pivotal strategy to increase the economic performance of their organizations.  It is also critical that women be proactive in creating and implementing a personal development plan and strategy to maximize interest in them by corporate board nominating committees.
