The Acacia Institute launches programs developed to transform potential women leaders into high calibre executives leading 21st century organizations

EDMONTON, Sept. 22, 2015 /CNW/ - Research shows that women are underutilized as decision makers within organizations, despite the strength they bring to our economy.

Bonnie Powers, Co-Founder at the Acacia Institute, says "While there is work being done to remove systemic barriers to women's successes in the workplace, it appears women are still holding themselves back. Believing they lack knowledge, skills, abilities and confidence to advance their leadership within organizations, women tend not to put themselves forward as enthusiastically and optimistically as they need to."

Our programs use a competency-based approach to transform potential into executive level leadership. Our graduates will bring high levels of competency and a fresh, authentic approach to leadership; stimulating increased collaboration, innovation and productivity at all levels.
