A UBS Fellowship Program for Professional Women

Re-entering the Workforce: Renewing Skills and Strengthening Networks

Are you a professional woman re-entering the work force? Would you like to jump-start the transition? UBS and Wharton have launched a program designed to support women returning to the workforce after a career break. Participants will focus on updating business knowledge, developing transition strategies, and networking with business leaders. This highly selective program will be offered at no charge to qualified applicants through funding from UBS.

Recent studies seem to suggest that there are a number of obstacles that women face when returning to the workforce, including a diminished ntwork and challenging family policies. Women, like all other re-entrants, must contend with a changing business environment—including technological advancements, regulatory changes, and effects of mergers/acquisitions. These challenges, as well as personal and family issues, are hurdles that can be overcome with the right preparation and support.

Impact

The program’s unique curriculum was designed with your success in mind. Participants will discuss the current realities confronting returning professional women and how best to adjust to manage the re-entry process.
