“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.”

“This program has really helped me understand what my true “superpowers” are and how to use them to be more successful and impactful in my work. If you’re looking for a program that helps you more deeply understand who you are, what you want, and how to use your strengths to get there, this is for you. And the networking is great, too!”

“It’s such a great experience to be in a group of supportive women all helping each other advance their careers. It’s really giving the language to more effectively talk to my upper management as well as be a more effective leader with my staff. What I’m learning is helping me not only with my career progression, but in my personal life as well.”
