Success is personal. 

Every woman defines success according to her personal values, goals, and priorities.

Each fall a new cohort of growth-minded women from diverse roles and backgrounds come from all corners of the country ready to level up and to support each other in their journey.

Who is the perfect fit for Women IGNITE?

Women in any role ready for a change, seeking to step back and plan their next steps.

Women in large organizations needing a reset after a transition or reorganization.

Women in small companies aspiring to world-class development akin to larger corporations.

Women in male-dominated industries seeking opportunities to develop and network with other women.

Women set distractions aside and recharge in an idyllic environment as they create a plan to level up. The experience begins by aligning goals with personal values and identifying the behaviors and skills needed to reach their next level. Participants form lasting relationships as they share insights and laughter along the way.

What sets Women Ignite! apart

We created Women IGNITE! to fill a gap in the market for a premium women-centric development experience. Women often express dissatisfaction that too many women’s events are large and impersonal, foster a victim mindset, and focus on fluff over substance. Women IGNITE! sets itself apart by:

Tackling specific challenges commonly expressed by women, but rarely addressed in a mixed-gender setting.

Combining evidence-based content and 29 years of experience to equip women with a fresh insights and practical tools they’ll apply immediately.

Limiting group size to foster deeper discussions and exchange feedback on practice and plans.

Combining results-focused experience we’re known with a setting designed to foster focus and accelerate progress.

“When facilitating courses and speaking at events, women often pull me aside to get help with the gender-specific challenges they face.

Women IGNITE! provides a positive, supportive environment where women feel comfortable addressing these questions and discussing the nuances of their challenges while developing critical skills.”
