Schedule:

Typically, we start our day promptly at 8:30 am and wrap up before 4 pm. There may be optional evening programs available for multi-day courses. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early on the first day to check-in.

Dress:

For most programs, the dress is business casual. We encourage comfortable clothing. For certain courses (such as Using Your Authentic Voice), you will be asked to bring athletic-type clothing you feel comfortable moving in (such as yoga pants) for part of the day. If the weather is nice, we may enjoy some outdoor activities, so walking shoes are highly recommended. In addition to outerwear, you’ll want to have a light sweater or jacket as our conference rooms can get cool.

If you are commuting:

Your program fee covers instruction, all program materials, as well as breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks.

If you are staying on campus:

Your program fee covers instruction and program materials, breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, and your dinner, as well as accommodations beginning the evening of the first scheduled day. (If you need lodging for the night prior or after the program ends, please contact us to make arrangements.)

Meals:

All included meals take place at the Wellesley College Club. The restaurant at the Wellesley College Club, along with Dole & Bailey, is pleased to bring to our guests flavors from Northeast Family Farms (NEFF) – locally raised meats, seafood, and artisan cheeses from various parts of New England. The menu has many selections including vegetarian and daily specials using locally sourced foods. 

Lodging:

Overnight guests stay at the Wellesley College Club, one of the few remaining hotels in Wellesley MA. With just sixteen guest rooms, the College Club offers personalized service and attention to detail in a quiet and intimate setting. It is a great option for our 2-3 day programs.

Some additional important points to note:

  • While we don’t discourage bringing your business cards, we do not stress business networking. This is your opportunity to leave work behind and concentrate on your personal growth.
  • We invite you to spread the word about Wellesley Executive Education for Women with your friends and coworkers. We do have discounts available when more than one participant registers from the same organization (please note total enrollment from a single entity is limited to no more than five, so we can encourage industry and experience diversity in the classroom).
  • If you have a disability and have questions about accommodations, please contact the Accessibility and Disability Resources office at profed@wellesley.edu.
  • Please note that Wellesley does not cover your travel expenses even in the highly unlikely event of a cancellation.
