What Makes Wil So Unique

Gain Data-Driven Insights from an Advancing Women Leaders Assessment

Your personal growth starts with data. Every attendee of the Women in Leadership Institute™ will gain access to key insights from an assessment designed specifically for women leaders. Taken in the weeks ahead of the Institute, the assessment lays the groundwork for the learning experiences during the conference and empowers women leaders to take charge of their leadership journeys. All-Access pass holders gain insights from their peers for a 360° view of their leadership. Virtual Keynotes PLUS and Virtual Keynotes pass holders can see how they measure up via a self-assessment.

Unlock Deep Learning in Small Teams of Women Leaders

Capitalize on the power of collective learning. With an All-Access pass, you’ll gather each day with an expert facilitator and a preselected team of about 20 peers to reflect on and discuss insights from the Institute. This is a unique opportunity for you to collaborate in small groups about how to best apply your learning to benefit your own development. We take several key factors into account:

  • Your assessment results
  • Background
  • Experience
  • The context of your organization and sector
