LYP Women's Leadership
and Career Development Program
The LYP Flagship Program is a leadership and career development program designed exclusively for ambitious, motivated professional women who are ready to be more
and earn more, give more and get more.
Award-winning trainers Dr. Jean Kim and Lilit Simonyan guide program participants to reflect on their interests, competencies, and passion, allowing them to set clear professional goals and a strategic course of action.
The program helps enhance leadership soft skills that are cornerstones for career success: self-awareness; self-motivation; social & emotional intelligence; communicating one's value & voicing goals; and building meaningful and long-lasting networks. As a result, participants gain increased confidence, a greater sense of personal leadership, and a supportive community of like-minded women who also hold them accountable.

LYP Program Pillars - The 3Cs

LYP Program was the perfect blend of energy, motivation and insight that I needed as a Canadian newcomer who was concerned about transitioning my career from a rewarding trajectory into the unknown. Not only did the program meet my expectations, it superseded them!
At the end of day two, I felt more confident about communicating my professional brand with clarity, confidence and consistency. I was armed with information on how to chart a strategic career path in Canada and globally, and the doors were wide open to a lifelong network of women living their potential. I am personally grateful for the gift of learning from the experiences of other women in the cohort from diverse professional backgrounds. LYP is now part of my Canadian success story and I will certainly pay the investment forward.
