The leadership development program for women in mid-senior management roles

This program is designed to prepare women in mid-level management roles to move into leadership roles while staying true to their authentic leadership style. Participants learn from the experiences and perspectives of executive role models and thought leaders who have walked their paths. 

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.

There was a moment in my career where I didn’t know which path to take. Joining the Rise and Lead Program gave me clarity about who I am and the value I bring to the table. I learned that we need to be authentic and that we can lead from where we are. This program helped me raise my aspiration to become an executive, giving me the boldness to get more visible and the confidence to reach out to my bosses and my CEO to share my ambition and get involved in change initiatives in my company.
