ALEXANDRIA, Va.—As of this week, the NACS Executive Education sessions are still on track. NACS is actively monitoring the coronavirus outbreak with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and its educational partners.

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

The NACS Women’s Leadership Program at the Yale School of Management at Yale University in New Haven, Conn., will be held October 25 to 30. The program addresses the unique challenges women face in the workplace by helping attendees develop critical top team leadership skills and refine strategic perspective and decision-making. Endowed by Altria, John Middleton, Nat Sherman, Philip Morris USA and U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co., the Women’s Leadership Program helps attendees understand and hone leadership style through feedback assessments, improve executive presence, leverage diversity to accelerate innovation and practice emotionally intelligent leadership.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the content and atmosphere of the program. I’m going to share my experience with several women back at the office who would get a lot out of it too,” said Amanda Flowers, fuel accounting manager at Wallis Co. “Thanks for recognizing the need and developing such an amazing curriculum.”
