Virtual Learning


The WiM Virtual Learning Series consists of six bimonthly webinars which allow participants to conveniently and affordably learn about a variety of industry-related topics. Qualified educators, speakers and coaches present on key topics of interest, such as leadership, management, diversity, technological skills, and communication. The Virtual Learning Series is intended to enhance women’s workplace satisfaction as well as their career engagement and commitment.

Both non-WiM members and WiM members have access to this series, however, the webinars are a free WiM-member benefit. All archived webinars are available to WiM members at any time.

Support for this series is provided by Arconic Foundation. On November 1, 2016, Arconic launched following the separation from Alcoa.
