Networking Skills for Women Leaders

Last updated June 14, 2021

Hone your networking skills so that you can make an impact with your unique skillset.


People have varied reactions to the word “networking.” For example, women sometimes have adverse feelings about networking as they don’t wish to feel they are “using” people. However, this reluctance can hinder their career progression and ability to make an impact where their skillsets would be an asset.

In this 90-minute training, you will learn from Provost Karlyn Crowley as she talks through the importance of networking for women and gives you insights into skills you likely already have that can help you to network effectively – not only furthering your own career but offering your skills and wisdom to others as well.

Who should attend?

Women leaders across all areas of campus, at all levels.
