Initiative for Women in Business

Rotman’s Initiative for Women in Business has been committed to strengthening the female talent pipeline since 2008. With programming tailored for each stage of a woman’s career, participants gain strategic decision-making and leadership skills, and learn to influence and inspire teams. Together with award-winning faculty and corporate partners, we proudly support women’s career development as a keystone to organizational prosperity.

The Rotman Initiative programming features a blend of practical knowledge and top academic instruction, centered in three key areas: Personal Performance, Leading Growth, and Transition Support. The Rotman Initiative also offers mixed-gender programs for internationally-educated professionals.
