Creating a safe and comfortable yet professional atmosphere where top executives in corporate leadership can share and learn. We aim to disrupt systems inhibiting inclusivity and growth through vulnerability and diverse perspectives. We will bring visibility to the "realness" of these executives and the challenges they face while navigating the corporate landscape, and provide tactical methods for enacting change.
