The program spans 12 months with a total of 24 hours of intense training delivered in monthly 2-hour virtual workshops and includes between-session bridgework to cement mastery and understanding.

designed to amplify career success

We emphasize intentional career navigation, developing business, financial, and strategic acumen, managing difficult situations or people, and crafting and managing their personal brand to chart their own professional path as they rise through the ranks.


“I think the best part of this program is that it’s given me dedicated time to focus exclusively on my career advancement, outside the noise of the day-to-day at work, and with two kids – it can be crazy. This is a great tool for a woman who has a busy schedule but still wants to advance her career – it’s a worthwhile investment.”
