C-Ahead® gives future women executives the opportunity to learn from real experiences, real wisdom, and real solutions from those who have lived it.
C-Ahead® is an exclusive program developed to prepare qualified women in operational roles for a fast track to highly visible positions in the C-Suite. Specific and actionable content focuses on the skills and experience necessary to succeed in significant executive positions at top corporations. Participants can network and build relationships with high-potential peers and C200 members who are accomplished executives that have mastered business leadership and are now devoted to changing the landscape for future generations.
The C-Ahead® Program is designed for women who:
Have been identified as one of the women with the highest potential to run her company or a major division.
Are likely to achieve a role leading a major business and P&L within 1-3 years.
Have experience running a P&L or another significantly influential role in the organization with top and/or bottom line impact.
Since its inception in 2017, 112 women have completed the C-Ahead® program.
Fifteen of these 112 participants have already gone on to earn a senior-level leadership role with operational responsibility – qualifying them to join C200 members and commit to the continuation of advancing women in business.
Women accepted into C-Ahead® participate in a 6-month virtual program, attending monthly sessions and small group discussions with robust educational content. Our faculty includes accomplished and successful women executives from the C200 membership who enrich the content through real-world scenarios and shared experiences from their leadership journeys.
There are many opportunities for in-person connections with C-Ahead® peers and C200 members, as well as invitations to exclusive events and programs.
Our next C-Ahead® cohort beings in March 2022; check back for more information about the nomination process.
