Participating in the right peer environments can be the difference between slow incremental growth and the kind of growth that changes our entire outlook on what's truly possible in our life and career. Yet most women don't have access to a vetted group of success-oriented individuals looking to learn and grow from each other.

That's why we connect women professionals in a flexible environment, provide monthly peer coaching sessions, and partner with employers to address the barriers holding women back in the workplace.

Caregiving responsibilities are the number two reason (second only to retirement), that people, mostly women, leave the workforce. This negatively impacts our nation’s workforce availability as well as women’s lifetime earnings. Making this not a women’s issue, but an economic one.

That's why we invest in women-led companies enabling employers to build more inclusive workspaces and support women's labor force participation through the care economy.
