WIA is a fresh and authentic professional development and mentoring program whose goal it is to enable promising female executives to fulfill their highest potential and move the needle on increasing the proportion of women as CEO’s, in the C-suite, board rooms and other prominent leadership roles.

  • MENTORING

    WIA's program is unique in that we offer group mentoring in cluster groups instead of one-on-one.

     
  • Education

    WIA's curriculum is designed to give mentees the tactical tools and skillsets that our mentors believe have been pivotal in their own professional success.

     
  • NETWORKING

    It's no secret that some of the world's most successful business leaders are incredible networkers.
