Pepperdine University Women's Leadership Series Offers Leading with Authenticity and Courage for a Fulfilling and Meaningful Career


Despite the abundant data that supports the need for more women in top management and the board room, the gender gap persists in the workforce in terms of the percentage of women in upper management, pay, career path, and leadership development. Key leadership issues women face in business and career will be addressed in a unique curriculum-based executive education program offered in February, March and May by the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University. The Pepperdine Women's Leadership Series is designed for woman professionals who are interested in further developing their leadership skills and embracing their own leadership style.

The Pepperdine Women's Leadership Series ( is comprised of a series of three two-day modules set in a retreat atmosphere at the Loews Santa Monica resort. Each module contains two full-days of curriculum based programming led by Pepperdine women faculty members and two dinner discussion sessions led by women executives. Participants may register for each module individually or register for all three modules. Register for all three modules for a program discount and to receive three hours of coaching.
