Williams College of Business develops workforce re-entry program for professional women

Program runs through October at Xavier's Deerfield campus


Professional women hold leadership positions in companies representing every industry segment, and many balance both professional and personal commitments during their careers. While a professional may never lose her skill set, a prolonged absence from the workforce can create a difficult environment for women who wish to return to their careers. That’s why the Williams College of Business created Back to Business, a professional development program designed specifically for women who want to return to the workplace. The 12-day program provides current business updates, transitional assistance and key networking opportunities with other high-potential peers, to help women return to a leadership position.

This program:

  • Facilitates your return to the workplace by immersing you in an intensive learning environment with strong leadership, career-development and transition components.
  • Updates and refreshes your quantitative and qualitative skill sets and develop the assurance to deal with key business concepts that may have emerged during your time away.
  • Provides an environment in which you can network with high-potential peers who share similar backgrounds, career aspirations and work/life challenges.
  • Immerses participants in an intensive, high-impact learning setting with strong leadership, career development and transition components.
The program runs Oct 1-4, 8-11, 15-18, from 9:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at Xavier's Deerfield campus located at 4770 Duke Drive. Those who should attend include women with M.B.A.s or a master’s degree in another discipline who have work experience in a high-potential career, strong aspirations to return to the corporate workforce and can commit to the entire program.
