The nine-month program is designed to help a diverse group of potential, emerging and existing community leaders acquire an understanding of the strengths and challenges of the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati area and the skills necessary to motivate and engage others in collaborative efforts. More information can be found here.

SOAR

SOAR is a one-of-a kind professional development program for high-potential women who have proven their readiness to advance within their organization. These women typically have 7-17 years of experience and have demonstrated a willingness to take on new leadership challenges and responsibilities.  SOAR is also an opportunity to learn from peers. Rooted in a discussion-rich, humanities-based curriculum, SOAR takes into account the different style of leadership women bring to work. See more.
