Glidewell brought back its annual Guiding Leaders program designed to train a select group of women to become key influencers in the field.

The Guiding Leaders program at Glidewell offers practicing women dentists an opportunity to be a part of a 6-month, in-person training initiative to strengthen leadership skills and spark change for other women in dentistry. 

Women with 5 or more years of clinical experience and who live in the United States are encouraged to apply.

With a nonclinical curriculum, the program emphasizes themes that will directly influence the participants’ practices and their surrounding networks. 

The program includes courses on practice management, leadership development, financial planning, case photography, and brand enhancement. 

Each selected participant will also be assigned a personal mentor for the program who is dedicated to improving their specific practice.

“Guiding Leaders is focused on empowering women in the industry and helping them expand their leadership goals,” said Stephenie Goddard, chief executive officer at Glidewell and Guiding Leaders visionary. “This dynamic environment is dedicated to advancing their knowledge of business, communication and team building.”

The second annual Guiding Leaders program launches this April and concludes in October. Participants will also be able to earn up to 70 continuing education credits. 

Apply online before the March 25, 2022, deadline.
