Oklahoma State University’s Spears School of Business is hosting the Next Level Leadership for Women series beginning in March and concluding in June.

The series is designed to inspire, educate and empower women to come together with one purpose: to rise to the next level in life and leadership. Next Level Leadership is hosted in cooperation with the Oklahoma International Women’s Forum and LeadHERboard and is intended for women in mid-to-upper-level management positions or those seeking opportunities to rise to the next level. 

The series begins on March 8 at the Women’s Business Leadership Conference in Tulsa. It continues with four virtual sessions March 21, April 4, April 13 and May 10. Then, to complete the course, in-person sessions will be held in Stillwater on June 14-16.

Next Level Leadership will be presented by Spears Business faculty and feature other dynamic speakers such as Hernani Alves, Amazon best-selling author; Kari Mirabal, TedX speaker, leader and innovator; Sara Bradshaw Ray, founder of My Network; and Shannon L. Rich, founder of LeadHERboard, and Oklahoma Hall of Fame president and CEO.

The featured speakers will discuss topics such as women’s leadership in times of crisis, practicing mindfulness in leadership and life, negotiations in the workplace and accountability.

Registration is $4,500 and includes books, meals while in Stillwater, one-on-one coaching, a professional headshot, Kolbe assessment and complimentary registration to the Women’s Business Leadership Conference. Next Level Leadership will be limited to 30 women, register here to secure a spot.

“Research has shown that having more women in leadership roles predicts higher job satisfaction and commitment to the organization for people of all genders,” said Rebecca Eastham, director of the OSU Center for the Future of Work. “With women now leaving the workforce at much higher rates than men and women’s participation in the labor force dropping to its lowest level in three decades, OSU wants to help develop and retain women in leadership roles.

"Next Level Leadership is designed for this purpose. Not only is this program filled with relevant and timely content, but it also provides hands-on, application of critical skills while building a network from across the state of Oklahoma.”
