"The Monarch Center helps women make it in a man's world."
Woodstock, IL (PRWEB) February 11, 2011
The Monarch Center for Women's Leadership Development offers a variety of virtual and onsite workshops that help women acquire the learning and skills to influence and guide others in today's business world. The Center offers a limited number of scholarships to attend its workshops to women who want to fulfill their leadership potential and are in the final year of undergraduate or graduate studies at a regionally accredited university or who work or volunteer for a 501c3 non-profit organization.
The Center is now accepting applications for scholarships to its six-week Winter 2011 teleclass, Creating Coaching, and Managing High-Powered Work Teams that begins February 23, 2011. Scholarship applications can be downloaded from the Center's website, under the Foundation Tab.
Center founder, Merida L. Johns, Ph.D., says that an important part of the Center's philosophy is women mentoring women. "As part of this philosophy we felt that offering workshop and teleclass scholarships to women who are beginning or expanding their careers is an expression of 'modeling the way' for others," says Johns. "And because of my active involvement in 501c3 organizations, I also know that women play an extraordinary part in the success of non-profits, but frequently their organizations don't have the financial resources to help them expand their leadership potential," adds Dr. Johns. "For these reasons, I felt strongly that our scholarships should be expanded to women who are working or volunteering in 501c3 organizations."
The Center's teleclasses and workshop topics range from practical know-how, such as team and meeting management to learning leadership practices that inspire and motivate others, encourage innovation, and provide energy to initiate and improve the businesses in which women work and the communities in which they live.
