Our Partners

The Vision

We provide leading corporations with a multi-faceted environment—both on and off-site – for their talented women to develop needed skills and shifts to become the next generation of top executives. That’s why we have over 25 years of successful partnerships with many of the world’s top organizations including Adobe Systems Incorporated, Bayer AG, Bridgestone Americas, Colgate-Palmolive Company, Deere & Company, Raytheon Company, and Prudential Financial. It’s why over 96% of our corporate partners come back to us time and again to select and develop their high potential women.

We Continually Attract Top Corporations Looking to Create a More Diverse Talent Pipeline

With a strategic blend of mentoring, education and networking, our programs are designed to meet evolving challenges facing today’s businesses and their leaders. Here’s a more in-depth look at how we’re different:

The techniques acquired are sustainable, applicable and adaptable to every point in a woman’s career and continually benefit her company, her team and herself
We work with program participants, managers and mentors to ensure that the learning experience is mutually beneficial to both the company and the participants and that needed changes are pervasive throughout the organization
We challenge our participants to transition from manager to leader—and facilitate the necessary shifts in behavior and actions
Our programs reinforce theory with practical measures that support organizational goals, while strengthening the participant’s commitment to her professional development
Each participant is mentored by both peers and top professionals from leading organizations; and also learns mentoring skills herself
Instead of one day seminars, our participants meet monthly (in-person or virtually) to share career goals, benchmark best practices and provide mutual support


Let’s move our story forward together. We’d like to do for you what we’ve done for scores of leading organizations—unleash the power of a new generation of leaders.
