Why Rise & Lead Institute?

Studies have shown that women drop off as they climb the leadership ladder

According to a McKinsey study for Lean In, although women make up 50% of entry-level corporate positions, they drop to 25% at the Executive level and only around 7% at the CEO level. The World Economic Forum states that it will take up to 130 years to achieve gender parity. This means that many women will never achieve their dreams of making the impact they desire. 

We help women gain the personal leadership skills and mindset they need to navigate their careers and confidently step into leadership roles for impact.


Rise & Lead Institute is a Leadership Development firm that provides learning resources to accelerate women into leadership roles. We offer actionable strategies and insights gained from experienced executives to help women understand how to navigate the corporate ladder and lead for impact.

We help women achieve their professional goals, supporting companies to achieve gender parity in leadership.

We create a trusting and inclusive environment to facilitate open dialogue with women from diverse backgrounds, industries and sectors. This helps participants share their unique experiences and perspectives while learning from peers’ experiences on topics important for career advancement.
