Promoting the advocacy, empowerment and advancement of today's leaders

"We have a choice when it comes to leadership. We can elect to embrace a leadership mindset, rather than letting title and hierarchy define us. We can choose to be staunch advocates of other women, rather than suppress each other's talents. We can choose to be vulnerable and authentic, rather than uphold a guise. We can choose to be better." - Carrie Majewski, Founder, Women in Leadership Nexus


For too long, the term “leader” has been synonymous with power. A leader sits at an elevated position on a corporate ladder; a leader is a boss, manager and supervisor; a leader has an impressive title on his or her business card.

But shifting paradigms and ideologies have begun to challenge this mentality.

We are experiencing the erosion of corporate hierarchy, the endorsement of top-down, bottom-up leadership and the support for authentic leadership. We are witnessing the rise of the next-gen leader. But we still have work to do.

The Women in Leadership Nexus empowers women to recognize that it’s not title or hierarchy that defines a leader; rather it’s a mindset to actively and intentionally choose to lead. Through in-person events and an interactive online community, the Nexus unites women looking to explore, shape and apply the principles of a next-gen leader. We are at the nexus, or the center point, of a new type of leadership.
