Our career accelerator program combines

4 key ingredients to help you find clarity, focus, and direction so that you achieve the dream faster.

Working Remotely

Networking

We all know that building a strong network has the potential to pay lifetime dividends, but traditional networking can feel uncomfortable, superficial, and self-serving.  As a result, traditional networking events are often hit or miss which can start to feel like a complete waste of time.

 

Our approach puts the focus back on relationship building where it always should have been.  We facilitate introductions and provide conversation prompts so that you leave our networking nights actually getting to know a few awesome women instead of collecting meaningless business cards.

 

Meet like-minded women, spark real professional connections, and build a network that roots for your success.

 

Mentoring

Ambitious women are facing a mentor-drought. 

 

The fact is that fewer women make it to top leadership positions.  Women run just 44 of Fortune 500 businesses in 2022 (a mere 9%).  That puts enormous pressure on those at the top to mentor the broad base of women coming up behind them. 

 

It's a basic supply and demand problem.

 

Male mentors can help fill this gap, but men are simply not well equipped to advise women on how to navigate the family responsibilities that working mothers face, the microaggressions that nearly all women face, or any of the multitude of other challenges men in positions of power are unlikely to ever experience.

We provide you with direct access to Mentors with wide-ranging backgrounds and expertise. 

 

Our Mentors are women who have been there and want to see you succeed.

Mastermind

Ambitious women run into situations we never imagined and feel unprepared to handle.  We also experience periods of feeling generally tired and discouraged.  That's just the world we live in.

There's no reason to go it alone.  Our monthly mastermind provides space for sharing challenges, group brainstorming to overcome them, and finding support and encouragement for those extra tough times.

Even the grittiest among us draws strength from others when needed.  You are smart, strong, and capable.  With the right group behind you, there is nothing you can't do.

 
 

Book Club

Sometimes finding a woman's perspective can feel impossible, especially if you work in a male-dominated industry.

  

Best-seller lists and popular book recommendations are likewise packed full of men's voices.  Finding business and professional development books written by women often requires setting aside extra time to intentionally seek them out.

 

Too much male advice can drown out your own thoughts, shrink your view of what is possible, and begin to feel entirely disconnected from your own reality.  Following that advice, while well intentioned, can begin to feel disingenuous and ill-suited to the challenges we face as ambitious women.  

Sometimes you just want a woman's take.

 

Our book club gives you a leg up by amplifying women's voices in the business and leadership book genres.  We'll dive into topics like how to negotiate a higher salary, what it means to lead without the title or power, and how to advance by breaking a little glass yourself.

 

Our book club is structured to survive the real world. 

 

While we all love the feel of a physical book, getting through an audiobook every month is often far more realistic.  Book club discussions are a shade-free zone and all members are welcome to participate regardless of how far you've gotten.  We're all about progress over perfection and you're already a student of life with plenty to contribute!
