Univision, Smith College Team on Leadership Development Program

Univision Communications Inc.’s Women’s Leadership Council is partnering with Smith College Executive Education for Women on a leadership development program.

The Univision Academy will work with some of Univision’s top, Miami-based female talent, including programming managers, producers, news anchors and correspondents.  Taught by business-school faculty and leadership experts, the curriculum is designed collaboratively by Smith and the Academy to focus on the development of leadership skills, including in areas that might be uniquely challenging to female leaders. Women participating in the program will also learn from Univision executives about the company’s strategies and goals.

The program entitled, “Leverage. Influence. Lead.” is being sponsored by the Univision Academy as part of the Miami Chapter of Univision’s Women’s Leadership Council, a company-wide employee resource group that launched in March 2013 to help advance women at Univision.

“At Univision we are firmly focused on enhancing the performance and development of our people and in this case, harnessing the talent of Univision women,” said Tonia O’Connor, president of content distribution and corporate business development, and co-head of the steering committee for Univision’s Women’s Leadership Council. “We look forward to working with Smith College Executive Education to help prepare the next generation of women leaders.”
