ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Women face unique challenges in the workplace across all industries, and the NACS Women’s Leadership Program at Yale aims to help female convenience leaders to break through barriers to share their unique value and perspective within their own companies. The NACS Women’s Leadership Program will be held October 27 through November 1 at the Yale School of Management at Yale University in New Haven, Conn.

Research shows that companies with a critical mass of top-team gender diversity enjoy better financial performance. This program will give attendees the opportunity to develop critical top-team leadership skills; refine strategic perspective and decision making; understand and hone leadership style through feedback assessments; improve executive presence and leverage diversity to accelerate innovation; and practice emotionally intelligent leadership.

“Candidly, it was by a significant margin the best off-site program I have ever attended,” said Michelle Walsh, director of retail implementation at Wawa Inc. “It combines some of the best parts of other leadership courses, and melds them into one cohesive, weeklong journey—making the goal of being one’s best self entirely feasible. The NACS Women’s Leadership Program at Yale has changed how I look at a number of things in my daily life. I highly recommend attending.”

Participating companies include Applegreen PLC, Maverik Inc., McLane Company Inc., Reitan Convenience AS, and Wawa Inc. The NACS Women’s Leadership Program runs October 27 through November 1 at the Yale School of Management at Yale University. Register and get more information here.
