Online Courses Designed for Women, Open to All

WELL WBC has developed four key courses to help female founders and leaders succeed in a male-engineered world. Courses are designed for women, but open to all. We hope to generate networks of high-potential women and men who can befriend, mentor, and create opportunities for each other.

If you take three or four of our courses (we are developing more courses as we speak), you are eligible for a badge (micro-credential) from UMonline. Our hope is that you can leverage your badge with people in your network and community to showcase your professional or entrepreneurial development.
