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.

 Momentum 

WHY MOMENTUM?

Research shows that people who are the first (or only) under-represented anything on a team often experience:

  • Slowed career growth (from being overlooked)

  • Burnout 

  • Role confusion (from not being taken seriously)

  • Self-doubt

  • Offensive comments or "jokes"

  • A feeling of being torn between "speaking up" and not wanting to be "that person"

  • Loneliness

  • Lack of critical creative/thought partnership
