DIVE INTO THE:
Women's Leadership Challenge
Are you ready to lead in this new world?
These are unprecedented times.
A remote workforce, Millennial and GenZ talent on the rise, a global pandemic, protest movements, a shecession, a rise in extremism - we are living in a new world.
And a new world demands a new style of leadership.
According to Global Leadership Forecast 2021, fewer than half of leaders feel they are effective in leadership skills most critical for future success. Even worse, they aren’t getting development in the skills they most urgently need.
Break That Glass Ceiling
The Women's Leadership Challenge will train you in the skills practiced by the great feminist leaders of today - Jacinda Ardern, Christine LaGarde, Stacey Abrams, Shad Begum, Greta Thurnberg, among others.
We will counter imposter syndrome and self doubt, and help you discover what is most unique about you as a leader.
We will discuss the gender specific challenges you face as a woman, and design strategies to navigate them and change the system as a whole.
You will gain the courage to advocate for yourself and others, speak truth to power, utilize your strengths, and become an agent for change.
You will gain perspective on the lives of women far different than you, from other countries, industries, races, and religions, growing your aperture to lead diverse teams.
And then there's your power circle. This is where the magic really happens.
77% of women who place high on the career ladder have a strong, trusted inner circle of women who help them make connections and circumvent traditional barriers to success.
You will join a global community of women leaders who will encourage you, support you, and supercharge your growth. These will become your sisters, elevating you always.
Together, we redefine leadership, one where women lead the way.
Are you ready to be the change you want to see in the world?
