Let's thrive together.

Join our community of aspiring executive women of color, supporting one another as you prepare to move into the C-Suite, while getting executive level group coaching and curated resources.

Our program

We curate small groups of 6-8 aspiring executive women of color, your personal advisory board. The personal advisory board is matched with an executive coach who facilitates monthly 1.5 hour group coaching sessions and shares curated resources based on what emerges in the group. Your board stays connected in between sessions using a private online community.

Space to grow, support to thrive.

The Ascend™ program provides you with a space to grow alongside other like-minded aspiring executive women of color. Our integrated approach involves online executive-level group coaching, personal advisory board development, curated resources to support your leadership development, a space to process and strategically navigate identity-related leadership experiences, and dedicated time to evolve your leadership vision and skills among supportive women leaders.

Frequently Asked Questions

You will be matched with 6-8 similarly positioned professional women who are leaders in their organizations working their way to executive-level leadership. You will have an ICF certified executive coach facilitating the group gatherings using a coaching approach.

We will meet once per month online for 1.5 hours. To supplement our sessions, you will be able to read and download curated online resources that are accessible at any time in our private online community. 

Each month, we talk about something different, covering topics ranging from identifying and responding effectively to acts of exclusion to self-care and preservation.

Participation and attendance: We meet once a month over Zoom. If your application is accepted, you will be asked to identify the days of the week/time of day that works best for you. I will use that information to create a schedule that best fits all participants.

Is there homework? Yes, you will identify the actions you want, need and are ready to take in between gatherings. You’ll have about a month to test out new mindsets, behaviors, and approaches to determine what will work best for you in your context going forward.

You can post articles and videos, ask questions, and send messages to your personal advisory Board through our exclusive online community space.
