Stanford Launches Executive Program for LGBT Leaders

Jan 8, 2016 One-week long program to launch in July 2016

The Stanford Graduate School of Business has announced plans to launch an executive leadership program aimed specifically at LGBT leaders.

The "Stanford LGBT Executive Leadership Program" will be one week long and is designed for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender people in the C-suite. 

“The ideal candidate is the LGBT executive with a minimum of 10 years professional experience and 5 years of management experience who is preparing to take on more significant leadership roles,” says program coordinator Tom Wurster.

The program's curriculum will cover topics as like the effective use of power, acting with power, authentic leadership, and influence and decisionmaking. 

Participants in the program can expect to take away a deeper understanding of the leadership opportunities available to them, as well as a wider network and ways they can apply the program's learning to their organizations.

The new program is set to launch at the end of July 2016. Applications for the new executive education program are due by June 24, 2016.
