Leadership Development & Self-Discovery Program 2019


To inquire about participating in next year’s program (launching in Q4, 2018), please contact Kristen Kenton (, 949-584-766).


The Executive Women’s Summit University (EWSU) program was designed exclusively for senior-level, professional women with full and complex lives. The innovative and proprietary model was created by highly respected and credible I/O Psychologists, human capital innovators and business leaders. The program content has been thoughtfully constructed to address challenges, insights and opportunities that are not typically offered in traditional leadership development platforms. It is an experience focused on self-discovery, and requires commitment, vulnerability and complete authenticity. The EWSU provides female leaders with opportunities to:


  • Broaden their business leadership expertise
  • Increase their emotional intelligence and mental agility
  • Develop a deeper understanding of their innate skills, personal leadership vision and purpose
  • Create authentic, senior-level relationships with their peers
  • Learn about business concepts that will impact their career, as well as their organizations/teams
  • Create and execute a vision for sustainable success



“The EWSU leadership development program was a discovery journey which completely re-energized me. It came at a good time in my career and allowed me to think about where I am and what I really want in my personal and professional life. It gave me confidence and boldness that I have weaved into my personal and professional life, preparing me to take risks that paid off in a big way.”

EWSU participants are highly ambitious, senior-level women who want to expand and nurture a strong “sphere of influence” and build a respected and authentic brand professionally, socially, and philanthropically. We adhere to strict participation guidelines in order to honor our attendees. Attendee requirements include:


  • Senior-level, female professionals that hold influential/critical leadership roles;
  • Work in for-profit or non-profit organizations exceeding $10mm and/or 50 employees;
  • Successful track record leading teams, with a commitment to developing others;
  • Continuous learners and purposeful contributors within their personal/professional lives.


EWSU leaders will meet with each registered attendee prior to their first session in order to obtain critical information that will be used to customize each experience, and select an executive mentor whom will work closely with them throughout the program. Established and well-regarded leaders will provide keynotes at each session, in order to share their personal story and highlight their expertise within various leadership-related topics. Participants will also take online assessments to deepen their knowledge of themselves, and create clarity around their purpose and leadership vision.


The 2019 EWSU program is hosted at CSU’s Executive MBA Offices, downtown: 410 17th Street, 7th Floor, Denver, CO 80202.



“The facilitators and keynotes at the EWSU sessions were very valuable. I’m not typically in a position to be around such accomplished and vulnerable female leaders and it was inspirational to hear their stories.”

Participants will be paired with a senior-level mentor and complete pre-work assignments prior to their first session. Pre-work includes various personality and leadership assessments, suggested reading and defining personal objectives to allow EWSU leaders to customize each participant’s experience through the program. Due to space restrictions, participation is limited to the first ten qualified registrants for the program.


The EWS University program will change the way participants think about leadership throughout their professional, philanthropic and personal lives.

“The EWSU is a program that was developed by women for women. This made the class feel more like a group of friends versus strangers, which allowed for greater vulnerability. It was so valuable being around other female leaders that are facing similar personal and professional issues. It was refreshing to realize that I am not alone.”
