Creating Momentum

Cultivating female leadership is our mission,

but the Doyenne impact extends beyond the individual.

Young women are looking for the next generation of role models and our initiative is here to empower them. Integrating engagement with future Doyennes into our programs creates a sustainable and cyclical model for change. Built into every Doyenne program are give back tracks, emboldening women to continue the change from the boardroom to the classroom. With Doyennes, change isn't linear - it's exponential. 

     For every Doyenne in our program, an entire community of girls behind them will witness a success story; and an entire community of women ahead of them will gain a role model.

Masters or PhD?

Doyenne programs follow women through their post-graduate degree. Whether fellows choose to pursue their Masters or Doctorate will determine their give back track.
