Research shows women are underutilized in corporate America. They perceive exclusion or are given messages that they won't get a "fair shake" when it comes to evaluation, professional development and promotion.
Sensing a lack of equity and an absence of inclusion, these valuable employees often leave organizations making it impossible to meet DEI objectives.
We developed the Rising Leaders Academy to fill this gap.
Women making their way up the organizational chart, typically with 7-15 years of professional experience.
Communication & negotiation skills, career mapping, mental health, burnout & resilience, defining your value, conflict resolution skills, increasing your corporate value, and more!
8 weeks' worth of live virtual meetings, additional video and written content, community support via Facebook groups, opportunities for self-reflection.
$1750 for one enrollee. Special pricing of $1500 per enrollee for organizations wanting to sponsor two or more women.
We know the problems.
Too often, DEI efforts center on leaders rather than on diverse employees. Efforts we know spell success - like mentoring, succession planning, and career development for mid-career diverse employees - are commonly ignored. This leads to two results:
- Most organizations lack diversity in their leadership. Even organizations with diverse employee populations see that representation dwindles at the leadership level.
- The attrition rate for diverse employees, particularly for women of color, is a huge concern. Diverse employees often leave organizations in numbers equal to recruitment numbers – meaning no net gains in representation, no clear pathway upward for diverse employees, and no pipeline from which the company can draw for promotion into leadership.
We've developed the solution.
These realities got us thinking. In addition to working with leaders to design and execute elegant and effective DEI programs, we need a way to partner with mid-level diverse, emergent leaders who are the most likely to fall through the cracks.
We've developed a comprehensive curriculum to address these specific corporate pain points, including:
Send a loud and clear message showing your authentic commitment to DEI. By sponsoring your diverse rising leaders you solidify your commitment to investing in your diverse employees. That investment will reap a harvest of:
- A greater sense of equity + belonging for all
- Lower diversity attrition
- A robust pipeline of diverse leaders
- Increased visibility and credibility for candidates looking to join you
Transformational results await.
We will help you identify your unique strengths and teach you to appreciate and communicate your value.
As seasoned diverse professionals, we know the hurdles you face and will teach you how to jump over them with ease.
It is critical that you understand how your business operates and how to contribute to the success of your organization.
Combining deep knowledge of psychological principles with the know-how of having worked in high-stress industries, we give you the secrets to resilience.
