About the Program

Power of Choice for Emerging Leaders of Color is tailored to underrepresented high potential female talent. Participants identify the barriers to career and personal development and implement strategies to build their own development path. Key to this program is the "Success Path" pairing of the participant and their manager. The program includes six three-hour modules and four sessions.

Time Commitment

Participants have been selected by their organization to embark on this unique personal growth journey. This immersive program requires active participation over a five-month period comprising pre-work, reflection, group and break-out sessions, and other interactive activities. Each participant is paired with her manager, who is required to attend select sessions during the program. Attendance at the briefing session is vital.
