AMPLIFY your impact.

New cohorts begin JANUARY 15th.  We invite you to join us!


Despite a commitment to advancing women, many companies across Canada and the U.S. are lacking clear goals, the ability to measure progress or accountable leaders to drive progress. 

There is a real opportunity to accelerate the advancement of women by closing the gap between commitment and action.*

We see a major disconnect between commitment and action. The time to act is now, and the benefits will only increase.

The research uncovered a crucial disconnect: while leaders want more women in the higher ranks and are committed to the cause, they are not approaching the problem the way they would any other business priority.
