"What an amazing 1.5 days being part of SPARK Women Leadership Program!
Thank you Irene Öhler for guiding us and holding space for such heartfelt connections and personal growth.
I strongly recommend the program to all female friends who would like to find a safe space to reflect, share, gain insights about yourself and leadership style and be truly inspired by other amazing women!"

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The SPARK! program is a special opportunity for all professional women in Vietnam
to boost their leadership capacity, re-build their resilience after the past few months, and connect with other women to create a powerful network of support.
For companies the SPARK! Program is an opportunity to improve retention of female talent, for more targeted talent management for diversity in leadership roles, and to actively position yourselves as a place for women leader to join and flourish.
The SPARK! Program consists of one evening Women Storytelling Salon event
followed by a full day workshop tailored to the Vietnamese context.
SPARK! and its comprehensive Sister Coaching Program IGNITE! were developed as a response to many businesses losing female talent and hence having a smaller pipeline of women leaders for senior roles because women still face a lot of societal pressure to fulfill a range of roles next to their careers.
For businesses the programs are a way to nurture and retain their female talent, and to get a reputation for promoting women leadership in the market.
SPARK! is part of an ecosystem of LightPath Leadership programs and events for women leadership.
The program creator, Irene Ohler, draws on her 25 years of international experience and her past 8 years' experience in Vietnam, and has designed the program based on cutting edge research and international best practice.
Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion from LightPath Leadership.
