Women Returning to Business

The challenges faced by women in balancing their professional careers with family needs are well documented. One particular situation many professional women confront is the difficulty of resuming a career after an extended absence from the business community. Some leave their careers for family reasons and then wish to ease back into the workplace when they are able. The Women Returning to Business certificate program addresses re-entry hurdles that women who have taken time away from their careers face. Through a combination of classroom instruction and exposure to Atlanta-area companies, the program reintroduces professional women into the business community with a new sense of confidence and updated skills.
