Applications are open for the fourth annual WISE Executive Leadership Institute; the deadline to apply is Friday, August 4. This year's program will take place Sunday, November 5 to Friday, November 10 at Dartmouth in Hanover, N.H.

This five-day intensive study, considered to be the gold standard in leadership development programming, is designed to help women executives become more effective leaders as they skillfully seek to navigate their respective business environments. The Institute's customized curriculum – developed with the faculty and resources of world-renowned business school Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth — addresses the business and personal skills required for success, as well as specific challenges faced by women in sports.

"We are incredibly proud of the legacy we have created through this program in just three short years, and are grateful for the continued support of Tuck Executive Education at Darmouth," said Kathleen Francis, national chair of WISE. "Each year, WELI attendees spotlight new insights, share opportunities and create deep professional connections, and we look forward to selecting a diverse group of women to experience the value this year's program will provide."

Started in 2014, the WISE Executive Leadership Institute has hosted female leaders from industry-leading organizations including Aramark, NBA/WNBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, ESPN, CBS Sports, FOX Sports, Golf Channel, Coca-Cola, Octagon, Under Armour, USOC and USTA, as well as numerous major league teams and organizations.
