In line with the rigorous WPSP curriculum and guidelines, we designed an intensive week focused on how to successfully tackle and overcome the specific difficulties embedded in negotiating internationally as a woman leader: communication skills; building self confidence and mutual trust in a often male-dominated and foreign environment; building partnerships and effective networking and the difficult management of work-family balance (often at a distance), etc.
The program was strutture in three parts and had a threefold objective:
- Learn from those who did it: We often claim that with more women at the helm, the world would be a better place. But nobody has actually ever analyzed this claim in a thoughtful scholarly and comparative way to prove it right: with the help of renown scholars explored the role of women leaders in foreign policy in the EU and the US.
- Intensive training session on topic such as leadership, communication, advocacy, negotiating techniques, building trust, networking, dress code, managing work-family balance as women in an international and often multinational and multicultural arena.

Women's Campaign International (WCI)'s President Marjolie Margolies and Joe White Slade's Vice President Valerie Biden Owens led highly interactive trainings, with plenty of practical exercises and possibilities for participants to see their presentations on video and receive feedback from the experts.
- International conferences open to the public in the evenings to discuss with current international women leaders in the beautiful setting of the theater of the Italian Cultural Institute, followed by international networking cocktails.
