Leadership and communications expert Susan Tardanico has been named to the faculty of the Womensphere Academy of CEOs.
Aimed at preparing the next generation of women CEOs, this exclusive program is focused on new and emerging CEOs, presidents and other C-level executives across all industries. Curriculum includes strategy, operations, business development, innovation management, leadership, financial strategy, organizational design, marketing/communications, talent management and other critical business topics.
Tardanico, who is CEO of the Authentic Leadership Alliance, Executive-in-Residence at the Center for Creative Leadership and former corporate communications senior executive, will teach modules on leadership and strategic communications. She joins other faculty members such as Dr. Marsha Firestone, president of the Women’s Presidents Organization; Virginia Rusterholz, Executive Vice President Operations of Verizon; Lynn Tetrault, Executive Vice President Human Resources of AstraZeneca; Marnie Kain-Cacossa, Chief Marketing Officer of Saatchi & Saatchi; and other working executives who have distinguished themselves in their fields.
“At Womensphere, we are fortunate to have a network of extraordinary leaders – CEOs, senior executives and thought leaders from some of the most innovative and admired organizations – who are fully committed to advancing women’s leadership. The practical application of information, frameworks and strategies -- taught by current executives who are contributing daily to their fields -- is one of the many ways this executive program stands out from others offered by traditional academic institutions,” said Womensphere CEO Analisa Balares.
In addition to her roles at the Authentic Leadership Alliance and the Center for Creative Leadership, Tardanico is a leadership and motivational speaker, addressing corporate, civic and professional groups around the country. She also lectures on leadership and communications strategies at Georgetown and NYU graduate schools and writes about leadership for Forbes and ForbesWoman.
