About the Program:

The ANUW Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) was specially designed in partnership with Northwestern’s Office of Human Resources to offer ANUW’s early career members a strong platform on which to develop their talents and boost the trajectory of their careers. ANUW ELP is a highly experiential, six-month program that gives participants the knowledge, skills, and supportive framework to take bold, decisive and courageous risks now and in the future. 

The ANUW ELP is for ANUW’s early career members who are not only inspired but deeply committed, to grow their own and others’ leadership skills in their current roles as individual contributors and to position themselves for future leadership roles. It is for women who want to elevate themselves and others to ensure the fullest expression of their talents, paving the way for all women to flourish and thrive as leaders.

"There is no work more important than investing in and raising up historically underrepresented groups. The Emerging Leaders Program is critical to closing the gap between our intentions and outcomes associated with building a truly inclusive environment."

Program Overview:

ANUW ELP consists of several in-person workshops and fireside chats that build leadership knowledge and skills, along with activities, called Fieldwork, which participants drive outside of the workshop sessions.

The program runs from March 2018 to August 2018, and the time commitment is approximately 1-2 days per month.
