    Women's Online Professional Leadership Challenge

    Limited to 12 women/cohort

    STARTING MAY!

    Are you losing your mind stuck in your house during this Coronavirus mess? Trying to stay positive but feeling awful? Looking for a sense of purpose and meaning, and reevaluating your life in all of the solitude? Desperate for interpersonal interaction and community but stuck inside? Need to spend your professional development budget but all conferences are canceled?

     

    We're happy to announce the launch of an eight-week professional women's leadership challenge, where you will step into your power, build community with the support of a group of other amazing women, and emerge from this pandemic a totally new woman.

     

    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 constantly feeling bad about your weaknesses? To live in a world where women don't gossip, but actively support and promote other women? To find your life's purpose and live it every, single, day? We can get you there.

     

    All sessions are facilitated by Empower Global CEO, Samantha Karlin, and may include guest speakers.
