Date: November 11-16, 2018
Location: Yale School of Management | Yale University, New Haven, CT

About the Program
Women face unique challenges in the workplace, and they also add unique value and perspective. They shatter groupthink, improve communication dynamics, and reinvigorate companies in ways that make them more competitive. Research shows companies with a critical mass of top-team gender diversity enjoy better financial performance.

The NACS Women’s Leadership Program helps NACS Retail Member attendees develop critical top team leadership skills including developing strategic perspective and decision making, understanding and honing leadership style, improving executive presence and leveraging diversity to accelerate innovation.

Participants will exchange ideas with a group of experienced women leaders in the convenience retailing industry who face similar challenges in their professional lives, with thought-leading faculty at Yale, and with successful women industry practitioners who add invaluable insights.
