why women's leadership development matters

Women’s leadership development is more than just a buzzword; it’s a strategic imperative for forward-thinking organizations. Our tailored programs focus on bridging the gender leadership gap by providing women with the tools, knowledge, and network necessary to excel in today’s ever-changing business landscape. Through comprehensive leadership training, executive coaching, and skill-building workshops, we aim to break barriers and create a sustainable pipeline of women leaders.

HNS Leadership Journey

The transformative journey with Her New Standard’s women’s leadership development programs starts with self-exploration. This sets the foundation for the growth ahead.

A supportive manager plays a crucial role as both an activator and advocate throughout all stages in the participant’s journey. They help integrate learnings into the workplace culture, offering guidance, support, feedback, and growth opportunities beyond the program.

Key Stages

A critical part of the journey is to become aware of the inner critic, irrational beliefs, and limiting behaviors that are inhibiting success. Participants embrace their inner champion and define their leadership brand. As self-awareness deepens and skills are honed, the current self begins to evolve into the future leader.


This growth and transformation is facilitated through mindfulness, recognizing their unique contributions, and cultivating a leadership mindset.


Within a safe and inclusive space, participants engage with a powerful community of peer groups, coaches, mentors, and sponsors. This empowering environment allows women to explore and share their leadership challenges and strengths.


Ultimately, the HNS Leadership Journey empowers participants to advance and evolve into powerful future leaders, equipped with the tools and mindset to thrive.

The program aims to equip women with the necessary tools, knowledge, and support to excel in leadership roles, fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce.

Our women’s leadership development programs are open to women professionals at many stages of their careers, from emerging leaders to C-suite executives. We welcome individuals from various industries and backgrounds who are committed to advancing their leadership capabilities and driving positive change.
Women-only leadership training programs are essential because research shows that women can better solidify their leadership identity in a supportive community of other women, where it is safe to share their struggles and strategies. Creating a psychologically safe environment empowers women to overcome obstacles and develop key skills. As a result, these programs contribute to closing the gender leadership gap and fostering a more diverse and equitable leadership landscape.

Women in leadership enrich organizations by offering diverse perspectives, fostering collaborative environments, and enhancing decision-making with a wider range of insights. Their leadership contributes to innovation, employee engagement, and overall organizational success.
