The 2022 Women's Leadership Circles schedule are Tuesdays from 1:00pm - 5:00 pm.
Dates are as follows:
To withhold the integrity of a small group intimate cohort, space is incredibly limited. (We only select 15 participants per cohort.)
Due to that matter if you can not carve out the half day once a month to participate and concrete it on your schedule we ask you to consider waiting for a future year cohort.
That's why we're giving you MONTHS of advance notice to carve the time out of your schedule!
One of the most powerful aspects of these circles is the connection with other power women business leaders, creating the safe space to grow together.
So as much as we would love to welcome all we do have eligebility guidelines of our participants.
This program through other for profit entities sells for well over $2,000. Because of our commitment to fundraise for our business owners and community we are offsetting the majority of this cost.
Each participant's cost share is $200 for the full 5 month program that includes individual one on one coaching.
