Despite the increase in the number of women at work obtaining leadership roles over the last two decades, women continue to face obstacles in the workplace that can undermine their desire and ability to speak up and be heard.

To overcome these obstacles, the Taking the Stage program creates a space for women-identifying people to come together and discuss their specific challenges while building their communication skills and confidence in a supportive environment. Throughout the program, you will explore how gender norms have shaped and continue to shape ideas that impact leadership communication styles. With this knowledge, you will uncover and craft the leadership identity you want to create.

In Taking The Stage, you will amplify the impact of your communication by unleashing your authentic voice and presence. You’ll be equipped with the skills to craft messages that stick, use assertive language, and adopt a powerful presence that inspires confidence.

While we know you will complete this program feeling inspired, we'll do you one better. This program will leave you immediately equipped and confidently able to:

  • Apply and communicate a leadership identity

  • Recognize the mindsets, habits, and beliefs that are holding you back

  • Craft a powerful message that follows a logical structure

  • Use strong, assertive language

  • Speak with a powerful vocal presence

  • Display an authentic physical presence, both in-person and virtually

Taking the Stage is for women-identifying people looking for tangible tools and practical insights to amplify the impact of their communication and unleash their authentic voice and presence. It is ideally suited for:

  • Anyone looking to increase their confidence to speak with conviction and be heard
  • Those early in their career
  • Middle managers
  • Seasoned leaders

Taking the Stage makes you an active participant in your own learning so that you leave feeling confident in your ability to apply what you've learned. To get you to that place, you can expect the following:

  • Synchronous pre-session learning
  • 6 hours of live virtual learning
  • 30-minute one-on-one coaching session
  • Live expert facilitator to guide your learning, answer your questions, and provide feedback
