Rise & Lead Institute is a professional development firm focused on building a new generation of leaders while enhancing the leadership capacity of existing leaders. We provide the strategy, resources and support you need to create a positive impact in your workplace and society.
Why We Do It
Our purpose is to see a world where women from different backgrounds have equal opportunities as men to make the difference they want to make – whether it’s financial freedom to fund their lifestyle, occupy decision-making positions or build a successful business that makes an impact.
Women are overwhelmed, overworked, overlooked, underfunded and not generating enough revenue to fund their dreams.
Let’s consider the stats.
- 60% of women graduate from school, but only 29% hold leadership and management positions globally
- Women-founded companies employ up to 11 million people, yet Only about 2.3% of venture capital goes to women entrepreneurs.
- In 2020, women made 83 cents for every dollar earned by men, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
The statistics are even worse for Black women and other people of colour.
You do not need to wait until all these systemic barriers are removed. We have the power to change our situation.
