NEXT COHORT: May + June 2022
The 12-week career and leadership coaching program
for early to mid-career tech professionals who identify as
the “first,” “few,” or “only” on their team or in their organization.
Research shows that people who are the first (or only) under-represented anything on a team often experience:
Slowed career growth (from being overlooked)
Role confusion (from not being taken seriously)
Offensive comments or "jokes"
A feeling of being torn between "speaking up" and not wanting to be "that person"
Lack of critical creative/thought partnership
YOUR RISING TECH STARS WILL GAIN
