An incubator of women leaders
The CLUB offers a variety of programs focused on leadership topics, as well as an environment where you may practice, and hone, skills while receiving instructive feedback.

Monthly Forums

You’re not alone. At The CLUB you will meet other women in and outside of your profession, at various levels of experience, with whom you can meet regularly, and share ideas about issues you collectively face. We kick off each quarter with a new leadership theme in a workshop at which experts give us the foundation for developing leadership skills around that theme. In the next two months of the quarter, we share ideas, and challenge and support each other to hone those skills. Our 2017 themes are:

  • Q1: Step-up your career
Take your career to the next level and put your resolutions into action. Boost your marketability and create new opportunities by focusing on board readiness, getting involved in politics, or starting a side business.
  • Q2: Crush your roadblocks
Navigate your way out of career traps and overcome obstacles that can sabotage your success. Learn to transform setbacks into opportunities, deal with workplace bullies, and develop killer interview skills.
  • Q3: Own your power
Now, more than ever, women around the world are being called to step up, speak up, and to own your power. Develop effective strategies to become the biggest, boldest, most bad-a** YOU the world has yet to see and know!
  • Q4: “Hear me roar”
Stop, sit back, and celebrate your accomplishments and the successes of fellow CLUB members at our year-end events, including our annual party and 2017 Incubator presentations. 

Make the Ask: The CLUB 3-Month Workshop

When women ask for what they want, they increase their influence and financial standing in the world, gain more confidence and improve the communities around them. But women tend not to negotiate for themselves, citing anxiety and fear of failure as the key reasons. Often when women do negotiate, they’re less effective than men.

To address this challenge, The CLUB is piloting "Make the Ask", a 3-month interactive program to help women craft their “ask” and negotiate for more.

Informal Gatherings

Connections are deepened with comfortable interactions. We offer informal gatherings where members build meaningful, long-term professional relationships, seek advice, and provide support. These include early morning walk and talks, industry specific lunch and learns, and coffee get-togethers for members who live or work near each other.

CLUBconnect Program

The CLUBconnect program draws on the wisdom, experience, and know-how of members to inspire and promote the advancement of other members. As a member of The CLUB you will gain access to professional women with a wealth of expertise to share, as well as those that are interested in gaining insights from you. To support the membership, The CLUB offers formal and informal connections opportunities. To learn more please visit CLUBconnect.


The CLUB’s Incubator program advocates for a select group of CLUB members each year to help propel their career growth and personal potential. Learn more about the Incubator program here.


We Give Back. It’s not just about us. We also take an active interest in supporting the communities in which we live and work.
