The Women in Manufacturing Association® (WiM) and Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management, with the generous support of the WiM Education Foundation (WiMEF), have collaborated to produce the Leadership Institute for Women in STEM and Manufacturing to provide women with powerful tools to advance in their careers.

As part of a leadership cohort, you'll learn from world-class professors and coaches, build strong relationships with individuals in similar career functions, and develop core skills that create a lasting impact on you and your company. 

Since its launch in 2016, the program has graduated more than 100 outstanding women who have advanced in their roles and have added great leadership value to their organizations.

The comprehensive curriculum includes topics ranging from negotiations, influence, and effective communication to managing multiple levels of strategy. The course also includes individualized executive coaching, 360-degree assessments and peer coaching, as well as an Emotional Social Competency Inventory (ESCI) assessment.
