Women on the Rise

Women remain underrepresented at senior leadership levels and in the pipeline of future leaders. More of the same traditional leadership training is not the solution. Join us for a unique virtual program that takes a different approach. Women on the Rise shifts women’s mindset towards an empowered state, builds confidence, and sparks fire to succeed.

A six-week transformational journey

Build confidence to take bold action

Participants learn how they can best leverage their strengths to remain in an empowered state at all times, even when handling difficult situations.

Find an authentic voice

Women discover their authentic self through the program, which creates a foundation for communicating with influence and impact.

Overcome roadblocks that get in the way of success

Women on the Rise helps women understand their own beliefs, habits, and behaviours that keep them from achieving their goals and learn strategies to eliminate these barriers.

Built by executive women to empower women at all levels

Immersive experience

Participants take on a six-week journey that combines weekly 90-minute facilitated sessions with personal reflection, application exercises, and peer community support, all delivered through a virtual learning platform.

Action-based learning approach

Between facilitated sessions, participants experiment with what they have been learning by applying it in their day-to-day environment and sharing their experience with their peer community.

Coaching from expert facilitators

Our facilitators are women who have sat in the executive chair and know what it takes to lead with confidence. With a small group size, participants get plenty of opportunities for individualized support from these experts.

What participants are saying

The energy and dynamics that evolved within the group were incredible, we had a trusting and comfortable environment, and everyone opened up to share their stories and learn. The facilitators were very inspiring, and I feel that they reshaped our minds. My mindset was shifted – I feel more confident, motivated, and empowered.
