#MeToo

“These silence breakers have started a revolution of refusal, gathering strength by the day, and in the past two months alone, their collective anger has spurred immediate and shocking results.” The “Silence Breakers” have been named TIME’s Person of the Year 2017.

 

GLOBAL AMBASSADORS PROGRAM

We know how hard it is to work ‘on’ your business rather than ‘in’ it. With our partner, Bank of America, the Global Ambassadors Program heads to New York City from March 19-23, and we’re now accepting Mentee applications. GAP connects extraordinary women leaders to a unique mentorship opportunity, including one-on-one mentoring and strategic workshops focused on building organizational management, financial acumen and leadership skills.
