The WomenLead Institute's February Workshop

and Lead
With Confidence


At some point in your career you have been asked or you will be asked to facilitate a group discussion or learning event. This might be something as simple as leading a staff meeting or as challenging as designing and facilitating a multi-day strategic planning process.

This unique, highly participatory, four-day workshop will help you become a better, more inclusive leader; one who promotes new ideas and makes others feel included. It combines key elements of Plan’s renowned women’s leadership program with its highly-acclaimed facilitation skills trainings. The dynamic and supportive environment provides a place for you to learn, practice new skills, and receive immediate feedback from your peers and trainers.


Entry and mid-level professional women who are not already skilled trainers or facilitators will leave the workshop with knowledge of:

  1. Confidence-building strategies to lead more effectively;
  2. An assessment of personal learning styles and facilitation strategies for each style;
  3. A solid theoretical foundation on principles and concepts of adult learning and participatory facilitation methods—bedrock skills that can be applied to any context;
  4. Trusted techniques, tips, and tactics to manage various group dynamics and other challenging situations; and
  5. The opportunity to practice facilitating on camera and receive constructive feedback from experts and peers.

  • Plan's facilitation workshop teaches young female professionals valuable facilitation skills.

    “I loved that this [workshop] was created very specifically for young women who are early in their careers that work in a similar industry as me. This made it very comfortable to speak, open up, and ask questions without fear of judgment.”

  • Plan's facilitation workshop creates a supportive environment for workshop participants.

    “I loved the design of the training, the methods used, the structure of the day, the facilitators (and their styles), and of course, the content. I also loved that it was a women-only training and there was a very supportive environment created by the participants and the facilitators.”

  • Facilitators from Plan's WomenLead workshops empower participants to harness their leadership potential.

    “This workshop exceeded all of my expectations. The facilitators were phenomenal — exemplifying what a confident, empathetic leader should be and empowering participants to harness their own potential as leaders and facilitators. The women-centered aspect only amplified this.”

  • Plan's facilitation workshop empowers participants to share their knowledge with other women.

    “I feel very empowered and equipped to share this knowledge with my colleagues — even those with more facilitation experience — and apply it effectively.”

  • The Confident Facilitation Workshop will be held in February and June of 2018.

    “[The workshop] has definitely helped give me some positive (and confident) energy to carry over into my work. It was truthfully one of the best trainings I’ve taken.”
