    Step 1 | Discovery

    During the Discovery phase, we work closely with you to explore:

    • Your needs and preferences for women's leadership development
    • Your organization's unique culture, including internal champions, key stakeholders, and potential participants
    • Your timeline and budget

    Step 2 | Custom Proposal 

    In this phase, we turn the gathered information into a program recommendation, which includes draft curriculum, objectives, and outcomes.

    Step 3 | Program Design

    In this phase, we flesh out the details of the curriculum and work with our world-renowned faculty to customize content towards your goals.

    Step 4 | Program Delivery

    Programs can either be delivered at your company location or at the beautiful Smith College campus. We take care of all the details, including food, lodging, and on-site logistics.

    Step 5 | Evaluate, Analyze, Adjust

    We gather anonymous feedback after each session and for the program as a whole. After program completion, we analyze these assessments and work with you on next steps.
