Accelerate Leadership Potential Program

A 6-Month Leadership Intensive for Women of Color

 

As a high-achieving, minority professional woman, you know how vital it is to constantly explore new avenues that accelerate your career and present you with new opportunities for growth. In an dynamic learning forum, LeadHer Academy’s Accelerate Leadership Potential program will expand your horizons and help you achieve your objectives.

Over a span of six months, the program imparts an exceptional blend of 1:1 laser leadership coaching and relevant intensive content that will expand your long-term outlook while equipping you with actionable insights that you can immediately apply at work. This program is taught in cohorts of 10 women at a time so that each woman will receive the focus that she needs to accelerate.

The ALP program is designed for talented, high achieving, professional women of color with a minimum of 10-15 years of work experience.

Typical participants include:

  • Mid-level managers and directors preparing to take over senior leadership responsibilities 


  • High-potential professionals with a desire to accelerate their leadership potential 


  • Professionals with diverse areas of expertise – lawyers, engineers, managers and entrepreneurs, etc. – who work in any type of business context: B2C, B2B, non-profit 
and religious leaders desiring to elevate their leadership potential
