    A Private Network of Powerful, Socially Conscious Women


    77% of women who place high on the career ladder have a strong, trusted inner circle of women who help them make connections and circumvent traditional barriers to success.

    You will have your own cohort of 8 other women leaders to support you, as well as become part of a global community of feminist leaders from across sectors. After the program ends, you will continue to be part of a community of 100+ changemakers from 38 countries.


    Exclusively for Students and Alumni of the Women's Leadership Challenge

    Referral Circles

    Women in our network refer business to each other, make introductions for one another, and hire one another all the time.

    We hold monthly ask and give circles, where you can come ready to ask for what you need and ready to give to other women in the network.

    Women's Leadership Mastermind/Support Group

    Let's face it - navigating a global pandemic, advancing in one's career, and smashing the patriarchy isn't easy.

    At the end of the Women's Leadership Challenge, women are afforded the opportunity to join a leadership mastermind collective and support group with other ladies in the Empower Community to continue on their journey.
