The Women Empowerment Leadership Program is a process of accelerating the professional growth of women in the workforce. Although women have made significant strides in the workplace there is no doubt that women are still struggling to move up the corporate ladder. Women who are socioeconomically disadvantaged face insurmountable barriers to entering and excelling in the workforce around the world. They often have fewer opportunities for economic participation than men, greater safety risks and less political representation.
Guaranteeing the rights of women and giving them opportunities to reach their full potential is critical not only for attaining gender equality, but also for meeting a wide range of international development goals.
In today’s corporate world, it is essential for businesses to put a process in place that specifically supports and empowers women. Transformation in this area can only happen with a proven system that ensures all women have access to everything they need to succeed. This will in turn, help with company culture, employee retention, productivity as well as, profitability.
The objective of the Women Empowerment Leadership Program is to enable organizations to develop empowered and skilled women leaders within all departments of their organization.
This Program, offers a series of dynamic workshops specifically designed to provide the skills and tools necessary for each woman to become empowered, move up on their career path and be able to reach their true leadership potential. We focus on an inside/out approach – first addressing the belief system of each individual and how it’s affecting their results, how they see themselves and how others perceive them. We help them to remove blocks that are sabotaging their success or preventing them from reaching their potential. We build on their strengths and help them to develop new skills allowing them to own their unique value and shine as the expert and leader that they are.
The key to reaching personal and professional goals is to develop each new skill one step at a time building one upon the other. Each month, we will have a new focus area to teach and build these skills. Some of the areas we address are: Unique Value, Limiting Beliefs, Values-Priorities, Money Mindset, Elevating Leadership, Executive Presence, Communication Skills, Critical Thinking, Effective Negotiation, Authentic Selling, Confidence in Speaking and Creating an Action Plan. We help each participant implement what they have learned every step of the way for lasting change.
At the end of this 12- month training program, the women of your company will not only feel empowered they also be more effective leaders. They will have developed: an increase in self-worth, more confidence, they will be able to effectively articulate their unique value and expertise, leadership skills, strong negotiation ability, decision making and selling skills and they will know how to communicate powerfully and effectively.

Many business professionals struggle with realizing the unique value of what expertise, skills or services they offer, resulting in not having the confidence needed to earn their worth in the workplace. The Passion Belief Method™ is designed to help individuals develop a mindset for achievement, so they can reach their desired level of success in all areas of their life. This is a five-step formula we use that focuses on removing limiting beliefs and replacing them with empowering ones, revealing your unique value, getting clear on your values and priorities so you can move forward in integrity as a passionate and confident leader all while making a positive impact.
Being a great leader – one that influences people for positive change – requires seven attributes, or pillars, we call these the 7 Pillars of Excellence. This framework includes the following 7 key areas: Spirit, Mindset/Identity, Beliefs, Decision, Clear Outcome, Action and Support Systems/Environment. By achieving excellence in these areas individuals can become empowered leaders at work and in life.
Leaders must discover their ‘risk tolerance’ by first stepping-out of their comfort zone and second, engage with these four critical things in mind: Don’t let limited thinking stop you, focus on the ideal outcome and the rewards, learn from mistakes and recognize that success and failure are connected and are essential for growth. In the Critical Thinking workshop, we will use this powerful process.

And to ensure the information we share is not simply acknowledged and then never thought of again, we provide all participants with an easy-to-use tool kit and Success Action Plan to implement what they have learned.
This service is primarily available to the following industry sectors:
What can we actually say about the history of the technology industry? It is without a doubt a large industry that has experienced tremendous changes and growth in a short period of time and is continuing to change and grow at a rapid pace.
Although the industry may be known for its ability to launch innumerable start-ups, it is also a land of incredible market dominance by The Big Five, as referenced in Wikipedia 2021:
1.) Apple $274.5 billion -With 147,000 employees
2.) Samsung Electronics $200.7 billon – With 267,937 employees
3.) Alphabet $182.5 billion – With 135,301 employees
4.) Foxconn 181.9 billion – With 878,429 employees)
5.) Microsoft $143.0 billion – With 163,000 employees.
Other big technology companies on a global scale include, Huawei, Dell Technologies, Meta, Sony, Hitachi, Intel, IBM, Tencent, Panasonic, Lenovo, HP Inc and LG Electronics.
Technologies will continue to make our lives easier and more productive. Now that the world has recognized the significance of what can be accomplished by using and investing in advanced, sophisticated technologies, there is no turning back. Many businesses are adopting technological standards on a global level so that everyone follows the same procedures and performs more accurately and efficiently. Examples occur in business, medicine, engineering, architecture, science, energy and the arts.
As mentioned earlier, Technology is a fast-changing sector. Technology companies are not just evolving themselves, but also changing how other sectors function. All businesses work for profit and growth and to drive growth, they need to leverage technology. That is why more and more businesses are increasingly turning to technology companies seeking solutions that can meet their customer expectations in terms of end-product and service and give them a competitive edge.
Technology used to be considered as an enabler, but those days are long gone. Technology is becoming a requirement for all businesses. Businesses have felt the need for technology more than ever since the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result, technology is no longer viewed as an aid or support, but rather as a requirement for conducting business. It must be a component of a company’s mainstream strategy to keep up in this highly linked, digital-first era.
Technology is now a competitive differentiator for all other industries. Businesses are relying on the technology industry for several different reasons. While some businesses are attempting to digitize and modernize their workplace to improve productivity, some are looking to improve customer experience by leveraging technology. While some businesses may be looking for solutions to completely transform and optimize their operations with the help of technology and IT solutions.
When it comes to corporate change, the technology industry is at the forefront. Many technology companies provide support and consulting to companies in other industries. Understanding how an organization transitions is one of the most important requirements in this situation. As a technology consultant, you must be able to not only provide the software or tools for deployment, but also coach your clients on how to use the technology you deliver successfully and determine which technology solutions would best suit their needs. They can also spot weaknesses in the client’s technology installation.
Another area to look at is the lack of gender diversity in the tech industry. Diversity is critical in this industry, as it enables companies to create better and safer products that take everyone into consideration not just one section of society. Women make up 47 percent of all employed adults in the U.S but as of 2015 they hold only 25 percent of computing roles, according to data from the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT). In 2020, a report form McKinsey found that diverse companies perform better, hire better talent, have more engaged employees and retain workers more than those that don’t focus on diversity and inclusion. Despite this, women remain widely underrepresented in Technology roles.
The global workforce is undergoing a massive technological shift that many are calling the “fourth Industrial Revolution.” According to a recent World Economic Forum report, nearly a third of the most important skillsets in 2025 will be comprised of technology skills not yet considered imperative to the job today. How will your organization fill these critical roles with skillsets that are just beginning to emerge? Are your female employees prepared and equipped with the leadership skills necessary to do so?
The Women Empowerment Leadership program will help businesses to empower their women employees and provide them with the necessary leadership skills to ride the wave of this new revolution in technology seamlessly. The program delivers a proven process to adopt the qualities of a leader and help the participants implement what they have learned through their success action plan.
Banking & Financial Services
Financial services refer to the economic services provided by the finance industry, which includes banks, credit card companies, credit unions, insurance companies, accountancy firms, consumer finance firms, stock brokerage firms, investment funds, individual managers, and some government-sponsored enterprises.
The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, enacted in the late 1990s, increased the use of the phrase “financial services” in the United States. The financial services business in the United States was able to merge as a result of this. Companies normally choose one of two methods to this new business model. One strategy is for a bank to purchase an insurance company or an investment bank, preserve the acquired firm’s original branding, and then add the acquisition to its holding companies to diversify its earnings. Non-financial services companies are authorized within the holding company outside of the United States, such as in Japan. In this circumstance, each company looks to be self-contained, with its own customers and so on. In the alternative model, a bank would simply establish an insurance or brokerage section and try to sell those products to its current customers, with incentives for bundling all services into one entity.
The banking and financial services industry is experiencing a big shift due to the already challenging terrain and with the emergence of technology, the consumer expectations and demands from this sector have drastically increased. Consumers now expect to access banking services at their fingertips anytime and anywhere. Not only is customer expectation rising, but so is the need to improve the internal processes in this sector. Banks and financial institutions handle large amounts of data, which includes customer information, financial documents, account details and more, most of which contain sensitive and personal information. Due to these circumstances, it becomes essential to leverage technology to improve security as well as increase the efficiency of data handling and processing.
Banking and financial institutions are no longer limited to just financial transactions. Today, its common practice for financial institutions to offer credit insurance or other insurance products as they close a loan or even after the loan closes. As competition continues to increase, they need to understand what the market demands and what customers prefer. Modern technologies are available to invoke multiple customer touchpoints. Consumers are leaving trails of information every time they use the internet and financial institutions must use this information to improve their services and deliver superior products. Financial institutions cannot rely on traditional transaction processing methods alone and they need to adopt an omnichannel approach to business, very much like retailers or other businesses. This will allow banks and financial institutions to have a competitive advantage when it comes to engaging with their customers. They also know that this can only be accomplished through the implementation of the right digital strategies.
Surveys have revealed that nearly half of banks don’t have a clear digital strategy or a well-defined roadmap for digitization. This is despite the fact the most financial institutions know and agree that digital technology is a high priority in the current scenario, and it is fundamentally changing the competitive landscape of the industry. Technology infrastructure may be complicated, and many banking and financial services may find it challenging to deploy technological solutions. That is where strategy implementation and technology best practices come in.
In North America, women account for over half of the entry level workforce in financial services yet represent fewer than one in five positions in the financial services C-suite. In 2019, women account for only 21.9 percent of leadership roles according to the most recent analysis from Deloitte. If current trends continue the study shows, gender equality in leadership roles at financial services firms may not come until 2085.
A research study collected by LeanIn.org and McKinsey about Women in the Workforce showed that companies in the top quartile for ethnic/cultural diversity on executive teams were 33 percent more likely to have industry leading profitability. Improved representation of female leaders will lead to a more rounded view of customers. This is particularly crucial in financial services, given that today more than half of women control their household finances and responsible for household savings and investments.
Furthermore, companies that don’t focus on gender equality will find themselves at a disadvantage when seeking qualified talent. Many women early in their careers do not aspire to top positions mostly because they don’t believe it’s possible, and even when they do, they often lack the support needed to rise to the top.
The Women Empowerment Leadership Program is specifically designed to empower women in the banking and financial industry to rise-up the corporate ladder. It will provide them with the confidence and specific leadership skills necessary to prepare them to successfully move into those coveted C-suite roles.
Biotechnology as an industry, is the creation of medicines that are derived from living organisms. Whereas pharmaceuticals are created from artificial materials or sources. The two industries have very similar initiatives since the long-term goal is to develop medicines that will make the world healthier.
Biotech is typically divided into two groups: medical or agricultural applications. With that considered, identification and sourcing of DNA in the biotech field have helped the industry grow significantly since the 1970s. Top US firms in biotech include Amgen, CSL, Gilead Sciences and Novo Nordisk.
Medical biotech companies with revenues that exceed $150 billion annually usually receive the bulk of investment and research dollars. This is a big component of the thriving healthcare industry. Biotech has been instrumental in the initial drug discovery and screening processes. Some companies take it a step further and utilize the research data from the newly developed drugs in clinical trials to help prevent future diseases.
Agricultural biotech uses research and development much differently. They use it to enhance the utility and improve yields in crops. Eventually all food products can be made more nutritionally, if food can be made healthier for the animals ingest.
The pharmaceutical industry differs a bit because it researches, develops, and sells medicines made mostly from synthetics and chemicals. The top pharmaceutical companies include Johnson & Johnson, Merck and Novartis.
What are some of the other similarities between these two industries? On the upside, the workforce in both sectors is striving to make a difference in the world. Employees often feel that their jobs relate directly to helping people live longer, healthier lives. On the downside, there is limited job security in both the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. The fast-paced growth has caused many companies to merge. They do this to pool resources, and as a result, there is often duplication in the workforce, thus causing people to get laid off. Both industries experience high levels of stress. There are strict government regulations and deadlines that cause employees to “burnout”.
Trends are changing on the work front because both industries are now learning how to communicate and collaborate better. There is more often a team approach versus an autonomous one. This concept, as well as many strides in digital resources, has fostered much better working environments. But female representation still lags in company leadership. Women make up nearly half (47%) of biotech employees but only represent 31 percent of executive teams and 23 percent of CEO’s based on data from 100 companies.
In the Women Empowerment Program, we have a process to help empower women and develop them as leaders. We build on their strengths and help them to develop new skills allowing them to own their unique value and shine as the expert and leader that they are. The key to reaching personal and professional goals is to develop each new skill one step at a time building one upon the other. This will set them up for success in the Bio Tech industry.
The healthcare industry is one of the world’s fastest growing industries. According to Wikipedia, the healthcare industry is an aggregation and integration of sectors within the economic system that provides goods and services to treat patients with preventive curative, rehabilitative and palliative care. It includes the commercialization and generalization of goods and services lending themselves to maintaining and re-establishing health. To help define the sector, the United Nations’ International Standard Industrial Classification has established a basic framework which categorizes health care by hospital activities, medical and dental practice activities, and “other human health activities.” The last class involves activities of, or under the supervision of, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, scientific or diagnostic laboratories, residential health facilities, pathology clinics, patient advocates or other allied health professions. In addition, according to industry and market classifications, such as the Global Industry Classification Standard and the Industry Classification Benchmark, health care includes many categories of medical equipment, instruments and services including biotechnology, drug manufacturing and delivery diagnostic laboratories and substances. It’s important to note that Pharmaceuticals and other medical devices are the leading high technology exports of Europe and the United States. The United States leads in the bio tech and pharmaceutical fields, accounting for three-quarters of the world’s biotechnology revenues.
Many health-care interventions have improved in quantity and quality as a result of scientific advances, such as advancements in the medical model of health, which focuses on the elimination of illness through diagnosis and successful treatment. Health research, biomedical research, and pharmaceutical research have all yielded significant results. This is the foundation for evidence-based medicine and evidence-based practice in health care delivery. For example, while Europe spends somewhat less on pharmaceutical research and development than the United States (22.50 billion against 27.05 billion in 2006), the United States contributes for 80% of global biotechnology research and development investment.
Artificial intelligence initiatives in the field of health services research are also supporting the development of systems and health assessments that result in programs that are clinically useful, timely, change-sensitive, culturally sensitive, low burden, low cost, integrated into standard procedures, and involve the patient.
There are five primary methods of funding health care systems: general taxation to the state, county or municipality; social health insurance; voluntary or private health insurance; out-of-pocket payments and donations to health charities.
Most countries use a combination of all five models to fund health-care services, but how they’re dispersed varies by country and over time. In all countries and jurisdictions, many themes in politics and evidence can influence a government’s, private sector enterprises’, or other groups’ decision to adopt a specific health policy relating the financing structure. Social health insurance, for example, permits a country’s whole population to be covered for health care. This coverage is regulated, as are the services offered. A parallel private, usually for-profit, health-care system is allowed to operate in almost every country with a government-funded health-care system. This is also known as universal health care or two-tier health care.
Many different groups provide health care in the United States. The majority of health-care institutions are owned and run by private companies. In the United States, 58 percent of community hospitals are non-profit, 21% are government-owned, and 21% are for-profit. In 2014, the United States spent more on health care per capita ($9,403) and as a percentage of GDP (17.1%) than any other country, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Despite having one of the world’s most powerful economies, the United States is the only industrialized country without universal health care coverage.
In the United Kingdom, health care is devolved, with England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales each having their own publicly financed healthcare systems, funded by and answerable to separate governments and parliaments, as well as smaller private and voluntary services. As a result of each country’s unique policies and priorities, these systems today have a wide range of variances. Despite the fact that each country has its own health-care system, the performance of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) may be examined for worldwide comparisons.
The United Kingdom was ranked the best healthcare system in the world overall and in the following categories in a 2014 report by the Commonwealth Fund ranking developed-country healthcare systems: Quality of Care (i.e. effective, safe, coordinated, patient-oriented), Access to Care, Efficiency, and Equity. The Economist Intelligence Unit has also rated the UK’s palliative care as the finest in the world. Cancer survival rates, on the other hand, were ten years behind the rest of Europe in 2005-09, though they are still improving, are eligible to enroll in the public health insurance plan. The cost of government insurance is determined by one’s income and has nothing to do with one’s medical history or risk factors.
Although studies show that on many measures healthcare was one of the best industries for woman, they still encounter many obstacles to advancement, particularly for senior position where they remain underrepresented. As of 2020, women account for 66 percent of all entry-level healthcare employees- an increase of 3 percent since the year before- compared with 49 percent across all U.S. industries. While the number of women declines in more senior roles, moving to only 30 percent of C-suite positions.
Organizations are acting at the top to increase female representation. It will be necessary to equip these women with the necessary leadership skills to prepare them for the advancement. That is where the Women Empowerment Leadership Program comes in. The program allows participants to experience transformative results, propelling them to move forward confidently with new skill sets as an empowered leader, so they can successfully progress in their career and bring more value to the workplace.

Chicago was founded in 1837 on the banks of Lake Michigan. It immediately became a major transportation center due to its location between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. The Michigan Canal was completed in 1848, connecting the two waterways. Due to its ability to create and transport commodities to other parts of the country, as well as receive goods needed for manufacturing, Chicago quickly became the Midwest’s fastest growing city. For the next century, manufacturing was Chicago’s most important industry.
The introduction of railways aided in the transportation of products. Employees from all over the world flocked to the area as a result of the booming economy. Immigrants arrived from countries across Europe, including the Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden, and Poland. Chicago not only survived the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 and the Great Depression, but it also grew to be even stronger as a result of both tragedies. When World War II broke out, there was a demand for combat supplies like torpedoes and field meals. Factories were constructed to design airplanes, engines, metal sheeting, and nearly everything else metal-related for the war effort. Chicago was the second-largest manufacturer of wartime products, after Detroit. Manufacturing is still one of Chicago’s most important industries today.

The thriving market resulted from the early days of transporting agricultural products such as wheat, corn and soybeans among the US. In 2017, Chicago exchanged 4.7 billion derivatives with a face value of over one quadrillion dollars.

There was a plan in place to upgrade the city’s IT infrastructure and STEM education, as well as cultivate an ecosystem that supports talent and encourages it to stay rather than be recruited elsewhere.
