Our why...

As per McKinsey & Co.’s statistics on Women in the Workplace, women leaders are showing up as active allies to women of color, including networking, mentoring, or sponsorship support for women of color.

And yet, women of color continue to lose ground at every step in the pipeline. Between the entry-level and the C-suite, the representation of women of color drops off by more than 75 percent.

WNORTH seeks to change that.

WNORTH is pleased to offer Accelerate Fellowship Program designed to empower women of color with tools they need to get to their leadership destination.

The program gives Accelerate Fellows access to WNORTH’s extensive global community, introductions, workshops, masterclasses, coaching, mentoring, in-person networking events, and The Members’ Club at WNORTH. Fellows also receive best-in-class thought leadership and opportunities.
