DIVE INTO THE:
Women's Breakthrough Leadership Challenge
Limited to 10-12 women/cohort
STARTING November 2!
If you're a woman in a position of leadership who is tired of being passed over for opportunities or ignored by men in meetings, this could be the opportunity that transforms your personal and professional life.
If you're looking for a global community of women leaders to supercharge each other's growth, this may be exactly the right place for you.
If you are looking for the courage to start your entrepreneurial journey, change career fields, or rise to the next level of leadership, this will be your launch pad.
Hi, my name is Samantha Karlin, and I have worked under far too many men who practiced hierarchical, toxic styles of leadership that left me disenchanted and disgusted. I have also been sabotaged by senior level women who have left me feeling betrayed and confused.
But I have also seen the magic that happens when you bring women changemakers from across the world together to dream of a better future, one in which women are equal citizens, women support other women to rise, and women are on the forefront of leading the charge for a better world. I know, because I orchestrated it.
For decades, women have been told that in order to get ahead they need to act like men. This is augmented by the fact that most of the leadership literature and practitioners have been Western white men.
Yet where are we with that advice? In a mismanaged global pandemic with hundreds of thousands of fatalities, a rise in populist and authoritarian governments, a rising maternal mortality rate (US), and only 5% of Fortune 500 companies led by women.
It's time to make a change. It's time to lean into leading like a WOMAN.
We're happy to announce the launch of a breakthrough women's leadership challenge, where you will learn how to step into your power, build community with other amazing women, and find out how women can finally rise to the leadership positions that we RIGHTLY deserve.
Can you imagine what it would be like to really step into your full potential? To lean into and celebrate what you do really well, instead of feeling bad about your weaknesses? To live in a world where women don't gossip, but actively support and promote other women? To live authentically as a powerful woman? To live in a world where men are begging women for lessons in leadership? It's about time.
The course will be a mix of videos, podcasts, reading, and live workshops/coaching sessions. The course will function through a feminist peer-peer learning style, where everyone in the room contributes their expertise, participates and leans on one another for support and advice.
All workshops sessions are facilitated by Empower Global CEO and trained mediator, Samantha Karlin, and may include guest speakers who are at the top of their respective industries. We will hit on all of the latest cutting edge research on leadership and galvanize a shift towards a world in which all voices are heard and women are equal citizens.
This is the only program of its kind, and is leading the way in new and much needed styles of leadership.
