“Women in the nonprofit sector are inherently changing the world in a meaningful way by the very nature of the work that they do. But they are often at a disadvantage because they lack the tools and resources to help them move into leadership. This program gives them both.”

  • I took your workshop a year ago and articulated that my personal action plan goal was to become a vice president of my firm. I used the power tool “Use what you’ve got” to differentiate myself and demonstrate my value to the company as the cochair of the African American affinity group, and focused the group on bringing resources to the company. Today, I was informed I am being promoted to vice president.
