Empowering inclusivity in leadership

Inclusion powers success

Diversity and inclusion is important on every level of an organization, especially at the leadership level.

RiseUp is our global program all about unlocking the next steps in your career, no matter what stage you are at. We provide tomorrow’s women leaders with the network, tools and techniques needed to help them strategically advance and level up in the industry.

Since 2018 more than 175+ women from around the world participated in our RiseUp programs, with more than 60% of participants being women of colour. The impact of the progam is far reaching providing aspiring women leaders with a unique opportunity to strategically create an effective roadmap for their desired career path. What does impact look like?

  • 80% felt more prepared for promotion after RiseUp
