The Initiative for Women in Business has been committed to strengthening the female talent pipeline since 2008. Together with award-winning faculty and corporate partners, we proudly support the career development, decision-making and leadership skills of female professionals.

We offer you a blend of practical knowledge and top academic instruction, centered in three key areas: personal performance, leading growth and transition support. With the support of the Institute for Gender & the Economy, Rotman is a strong partner to many corporations seeking to advance their thinking and action on gender diversity.
