Who it’s for

Young professional women who want more out of work and life but are unsure how to get it. They want the combination of live interactive learning experiences with a diverse group, plus the personal connections from a small cohort. They like the idea of an 8-week immersive experience to quickly gain new insights that fuel clarity, self-confidence and a game plan for personal and professional success.

Other considerations for a good fit:

  • Women in their 20’s and 30’s who want more connection, inspiration and support
  • Emerging leaders who want to stretch
  • Independent contributors who want to have more impact
  • Women navigating a male-dominated culture or team
  • Women of color who want more empathy, support and encouragement
  • New managers who need support, connection and coaching

How it works

The program includes three core components.

There are eight live Concept SessionsSM held on Zoom led by expert instructors and supported by a dedicated cohort leader. All sessions are 90 minutes and highly interactive with recordings available 24 hours after the session. The curriculum was developed by top experts in business and life, and vetted by business executives and HR professionals.

Each module has been designed by applying principles from the Dramatic Arc Model and the Scaling Intimacy School of Experience Design. The Equipt experience invites participants to connect, reflect, share and apply.

1. Concept SessionsSM
SHIFT

What shift do you want to make and what support do you need?

VALUES

STRENGTHS

MINDSET

2. Empower Hours

There are three live Empower Hours that include Q&A, role playing and spot coaching. Lightly facilitated and always unique, these sessions are powered by participant’s burning questions and specific needs. All Empower Hours are 60 minutes and led by seasoned experts and the cohort leader.

3. Pod Huddles

Each pod has 5-10 people organized, in part, around time zones. These sessions are self-led (with guidance from Equipt) and designed to create opportunities for additional support, relationship building and extended conversations with your peers. There are 4 Pod Huddles and each are typically 60 minutes.

The time commitment

8 weeks, approximately 2 hours each week.
