The Women in Leadership Nexus is a group of diverse women; incredibly smart, passionate and on course to change the tide of traditional leadership. This group is different. We honor our uniqueness in experience, strengths and vision and bond together to build a strong and powerful current.

Next-Gen Leaders

We know when we are in the presence of extraordinary leadership. It feels different. It’s energizing, magnetic, creative, awe-inspiring… even daring. It carries such a powerful current that we are willed to it. It’s compelling enough to rock our very belief systems. Simply put, it’s electric.

Whether you have experienced this type of X-factor leadership before, or know it’s out there, the Women in Leadership Nexus was created to help you become this type of leader—the next-gen leader. We inspire our members to recognize that title and hierarchy do not define a leader. We invite our members to explore the tenets of transformative leadership, principles centered around remarkable vision, empowerment, spirited collaboration and sponsorship. And, perhaps most importantly, we remind our members that they can choose to lead.

Our purpose is to forever change the lives of our women, helping them play it big to reach newfound levels of professional and personal success.

Your Leadership Journey

To partner with you on your leadership journey, we equip you with the trainings, professional development and relationships to support your quest to reach an amplified level of leadership. We also expect you to move our group forward through active participation, engagement and co-creation! Here are just a few ways your leadership journey will be ignited when you join Nexus:

  • Our quarterly chapter events are designed to activate you to spring to action, embrace a new leadership asset, challenge existing paradigms and re-frame your own view on what's possible. At each event, you will be asked to participate in experiential exercises, ideation sessions and small group work. No passive participation at Nexus!

  • Routine members-only events will enable you to facilitate connection and participate in knowledge-sharing with other powerhouse Nexus leaders. Your horizon will expand as you authentically share your stories with one another.

  • The "Invest Now, Impact Later" challenge, a monthly virtual challenge delivered to your inbox, will tee up three things you can do differently for the month to impact your leadership journey.
