The debate has been active for years — can you teach leadership or are you born a leader? Executive Women International stepped forward to address the question by designing the Academy of Leadership for member firms and individual representatives of those firms.

The many industries that make up the membership of EWI teach industry-specific skills. The Academy of Leadership teaches leadership skills that are transferable regardless of industry and title. The guiding principles on which the Academy of Leadership is based are as follows:

  • Leadership can and must be taught
  • Everyone has the capacity to lead
  • There are stellar examples of leadership within EWI
