CCNY’s CWE launches Women’s Professional Development Program

City College Downtown, the Division of Interdisciplinary Studies at the Center for Worker Education, is supporting women in their quest for career advancement with the Women’s Professional Development Program

Angelina Ramirez, CEO of The AMBLYN Group, developed the program and is facilitating the curriculum. According to Ramirez, the program will provide women with practical competencies necessary to propel their careers and enhance their progression into leadership positions. 

"Women often face obstacles to advance in their careers due to several circumstances, particularly the lack of mentoring and time to attend professional development courses,” she said. “Statistics have demonstrated that women are under-hired, under-paid and under-promoted. Our goal is to provide them with the tools and knowledge necessary to help them accelerate their careers.”

The program is designed for professional women and provides training and strategies to help them become more successful in their roles. The courses will cover various topics including functional training, leadership development and emotional competency, which is applicable to all industries.

"We are extremely pleased with Angelina Ramirez and the response we have received with the launching of the program,” said Dr. Juan Carlos Mercado, dean of the Division of Interdisciplinary Studies at the Center for Worker Education. “This is a very exciting program addressing many of the needs that we constantly hear from our alumni and students. This program will provide working women with the foundation and tools necessary to advance professionally.” 

The program runs from Oct. 7-Dec. 9, and each course can be taken independently. To register for the program, please visit
