Women Impacting at the Highest Levels of Leadership

Accelerating Gender Diversity in the Boardroom by Making the Connections that Make the Difference

We do the heavy lifting. Our services are white glove. Our membership is curated and selective. We make the match process frictionless and easy. Our goal is to advance gender diversity in the boardroom, with relevant “last mile” effort on behalf of qualified women and boards.

Aspire

Even women at the peak of their executive career ask: “Does a board want what I have to offer?”, and “How do I articulate that in a way that differentiates me?”

  • Peer Mentoring
  • Executive Coaching
  • Editorial Support

Our 1:1 work with you results in the valuable assets of a Board Bio, Elevator Pitch and LinkedIn Alignment. Even greater, is your strengthened confidence that you belong in the boardroom, and the clarity of what you uniquely have to offer.
