WIT CAREERS leadership development programs provide women in STEM fields with the tools and strategies necessary to join the next generation of STEM women leaders.

WIT has partnered with Emory Continuing Education (ECE) to offer three distinct certificate programs:

  • What It Takes to Develop Self
  • What It Takes to Manage Others
  • What It Takes to Master Leadership

Program participants are trained by Emory’s high-quality instructors and will receive an Emory Continuing Education certificate upon program completion. WIT CAREERS prepares program participants to write their own stories of success in STEM, ignite new self-reflections and pursue the infinite possibilities available in their careers.



We asked past WIT Careers graduates to share their thoughts and perspectives. Here’s what they had to say.
