For women looking to advance their careers, sobering realities need to be considered and addressed.

Despite years of advances in Russia and worldwide legal and corporate policy, many qualified Russian women don’t get the jobs they want. Misperceptions, stereotypes and misplaced emotions on the part of either sex can still sabotage a woman’s career hopes—unless she takes a more strategic approach to her career.

This hands-on course shows you how to strategically use your strengths and abilities—your competitive edge—while mastering your emotions in even the most unwelcoming atmosphere. You’ll learn how to build a network of support, take smart risks and view competition in a more positive light.

Return to your job feeling confident, ready to compete fearlessly, and in a better position to be recognized for your true capabilities.
