Honoring Opportunities for Partnerships & Equity (HOPE): An Accelerated Leadership Program

HOPE is an accelerated one-year leadership program designed to help support and advance the careers of mid- to senior-level, high-potential talent in underrepresented groups (i.e., LGBTQ+, women of color, women with ability diversity).

The program aims to provide access and opportunity through career coaching, mentoring, networking, professional development, and volunteering. At its core, HOPE focuses on the emotional intelligence leadership (EIL) theory, incorporating professional development programs designed to develop and enhance participant’s executive presence, mindset, and influence.
