Leadership Academy for women offers a supportive and  collaborative environment for women who are ready to move forward in their careers. The instructors teach from their own experiences at navigating difficulties in today’s workplace. This is a fantastic opportunity for women to learn and develop practical strategies for the everyday challenges of business management. –Marty Stahl, Volunteers of America’s Working Order Program
During my time in the PPW Leadership Academy, I met and established relationships with some great people, learned effective tools about leadership that can be applied daily, and glad that I had the opportunity to attend.
