Underrepresented groups have less natural access to the conditions and resources to support their growth and progression (e.g., fitting traditional “ideal leadership qualities”, having role models and sponsors).
Ceiling Breakers is tailored to underrepresented leaders and addresses unique challenges faced by these leaders, and fill gaps left by mainstream leadership development programs.
We address bias and stereotypes, reconcile unique identities, and build robust communities of support.
Leaders from emerging and underrepresented groups face unique challenges and biases. Our approach focuses on areas that they need the most.
Rather than providing expensive executive coaching to very few executives, we aim to provide access to high quality coaching to a broader set of emerging and senior leaders so that we can impact more people.Contact Us
I feel like I've gotten a better understanding of myself as a leader. I feel more energized in my job, and a large part of that is due to doing this work on myself. It makes me feel more in control and powerful: by actively working on self-improvement, I see more opportunities in my day to day, rather than feeling subject to external factors. It makes work more enjoyable, because I can see my job as more of a playground for learning and developing myself as a leader. I feel like I'm being guided on a voyage of self-discovery! I've been able to take things I've learned and share them with people on my team, friends — there's a massive ripple effect there.
Ceiling Breakers helps me to look inwards and deeply reflect on my leadership identity and strengths. I realized that the hardest things to overcome in my career are actually the things I have most control over - my old perspectives, saboteurs, doubts about my own potential for success. One of my biggest realizations from the program is that learning how to bring the best out of myself translates into bringing the best out of my team.
I think the mix of people has been really great in this program. I have found commonalities despite industry, role, gender, race, etc.
