To advance women’s empowerment, YWCA Clark County is focused on a new initiative for the next century of service: a Women’s Leadership Center. Modeled after successful leadership centers around the world, the Women’s Leadership Center will empower women of all ages to realize and harness their innate leadership abilities. We do this by providing structured seminars, roundtable discussions and goal-oriented activities that:
- Empower women of all ages to break down barriers
- Develop invaluable life skills
- Help each individual realize their inherent worth
- Clarify and apply personal values to professional growth efforts
Our community needs strong, authentic and innovative female leaders.
The Women’s Leadership Center relies on YWCA Clark County’s decades of experience leading the way in every social justice movement, protecting and serving women and children who have been victims of violence, advocating for youth and expanding the community conversation to include innovative solutions to our most complex social challenges. YWCA Clark County will lead seminars, workshops and program series that focus on leadership themes including:
- Effective Negotiation Strategies
- Career Mentoring/Finding a Dream Career
- Public Speaking
- Conflict Resolution
- Balancing Personal and Business Life
- Leveraging Talent & Experience
- Effective Leadership Techniques
- Community Involvement
- Economic Literacy
- Finding the Power Within
