Women face unique challenges in their careers over and above those faced by men. Women continue to be underrepresented in the most powerful positions in society (Collins & Singh, 2006; Eagly & Carli, 2007). The purpose of this project is to design a workshop to help women develop fundamental skills for building powerful relationships, and to strategically position themselves for success by creating a positive action plan for their future. The first workshop session on goal setting will help participants identify where they are going or want to go, both personally and professionally. Since work life and home life are intertwined, it is important in a goal setting exercise to set goals for both areas of life, in order to achieve a better work-life balance. The second workshop session on how women learn corporate culture is designed to help participants understand what corporate culture is and how learning and leveraging their corporate culture is imperative for advancement. The third workshop session on building strategic relationships is intended to help participants develop practical skills for positive networking. The workshop is based on the anticipated career needs of women and is grounded in adult learning theory.
