YWCA women's leadership program deadline Friday

If you're a woman looking for a way to enhance your leadership skills in the workplace and community, the YWCA Tucson has a program for you.

Through Friday, the YWCA is accepting applications for its 2013 Tucson Women's Leadership Program, which begins March 7 and ends April 25.

The program includes eight sessions and will give participants an "opportunity to interact with Tucson's outstanding women leaders and to network with other women," YWCA spokeswoman Marilyn Osborn said in a press release.

Sessions will be held 4-6:30 p.m. on Thursdays at the YWCA Frances McClelland Leadership Center, 525 N. Bonita Ave. Each session will include a presentation by a leadership expert and a small group discussion afterwards.

The program costs $400 to cover speakers, materials and refreshments.

Session topics

  • Strengths Finder Assessment – Janina Latack
  • Communication Skills for Professional and Personal Use – Jan Elsea
  • Negotiations – Leslie Porter
  • Generational Intelligence – Sue Porter
  • Leadership Fundamentals – Barbara La Wall
  • From Individual Performer to Leader – Kelly Nieto
  • Leadership Perspectives – Panel of Women Leaders
  • Got Mojo? – Michelle Pitot

The leadership program began in 1989 to help women reflect on leadership barriers in their careers.

"Participants are challenged to examine the skills and attitudes that will help overcome these barriers," said Osborn.

For more information, email leadership@ywcatucson.org or call Osborn at 844-7810 ext. 112.
