About The Acacia Institute

Inspired by the Dalai Lama’s comment, “The world will be saved by the western woman”, the Acacia Institute was founded in 2015 to create exceptional women leaders for 21st century organizations.

There is plenty of research to show that women are underutilized as decision makers in organizations despite the strength they bring to our economy. We believe it is time for women to step forward and assume their share of leadership roles; we applaud and support the 2015 International Woman’s Day Theme “Make It Happen”.

The Acacia Institute’s programs are designed for women who have high potential to develop their leadership skills and abilities, in a variety of learning formats, which will enhance their growth potential. Our curriculum is competency-based and developed with your organization’s success in mind.

There are three levels of competency development in our programs: Aspiring leadersEmerging leaders and Advancing leaders. Each program is tailored to a specific stage of career development and the competency level of the candidate.

Congratulations to our graduates of the Aspiring Leaders Program! Gina, Jackie, and Jessica, all from our first cohort of students. These women are committed, and will become impactual leaders in their chosen fields.

 "The Aspiring Leaders Course helped me to challenge myself and focus my skills inward. The Action Plans created at the end of each course set goals for mastering the newly learned skills that I found hugely beneficial to keeping me on track throughout the course. The Forum was a great place to connect with peers and mentors to decompress the material of each course as well. I’d recommend this course to anyone looking to enhance their career across any industry."


Jessica Savage, Mack Trucks, Inc.

"This program provided valuable insights into my motivators and how to develop my personal vision and mission. The modules and discussion helped provide perspectives and tips for improving self-leadership, time management and career goal setting.  The positivity of the other women and Acacia Institute have inspired me to pushing myself outside of my comfort zone to grow and improve."

Gina Myers, C.H. Robinson
