Advance Women At Work
Did you know that four out of five male leaders say a lack of confidence is the biggest barrier holding back women from climbing the corporate ladder? Or that 80%+ of leadership roles are held by men, partially because they approach networking, mentorship and sponsorship very differently than women do? Or that women are interrupted 3x more than men at work?
Informed by original research and delivered via an applied-learning format, Advance Women At Work offers inspiring and actionable content to help women be more fearless at work and in life. This workshop empowers the women (and men!) in your organization to become more effective leaders and create a collaborative culture. Our custom-designed program focuses on five key pillars--Confidence, Communication, Control, Connections and Courage—and we’ll dive deepest into those areas attendees identify as their biggest challenges. The value-packed curriculum combines insights, discussion and exercises across assertive language, personal development and business networking to accelerate women's advancement while fostering a healthy diversity that drives better business results.

Innovation Through Inclusivity
The race for talent is on. Massive global companies like Google and Amazon are planning to hire 40,000 on the East Coast alone this year. That leaves smaller companies across industries in a struggle to recruit and retain top talent. One critical benefit that attracts Millennials is an inclusive and collaborative culture. These businesses value diverse perspectives and offer employees a more fulfilling work/life balance.
