Through the success of the Signature Program, alumni asked us to impact women earlier in their careers.
Signature Select is an initiative launched with several global companies passionate about increasing the number of women in their leadership pipelines.
Ideal candidates have reached the critical point where they must pivot from doing/achieving to leading/influencing an organization in order to reach next level leadership. They are typically one or two levels below a Signature Program candidate, and titles include Director, Senior Manager, or Manager with fast-track potential to the next level.
Participants are invited to 2.5 days of immersive learning taught by executive role models. They join a peer group of multi-discipline, cross-industry leaders from around the world in candid group discussions, one-on-ones, panel sessions, and networking dinners. An invitation from an executive sponsor and post-session calls with executive faculty are used to recognize these participants as key future leaders.
Participants are facing a critical point in their careers where they are making the pivot from managing to leading. Signature Select gives them the capabilities and the confidence to successfully transition. Our curriculum provides the knowledge and support to navigate through uncertainty, create a basis for action, and have the courage to move decisions and teams forward. Participants hear from role models on how to manage career progression with external demands of family and personal life choices.
Alumni join the powerful Signature Network, including executive faculty members and advisors who support their careers and life journeys. Structured follow-up activities encourage ongoing learning, sharing, and the practical application of new skills and perspectives. The shared experience of Signature Select also creates deep intra-company connections among alumni who commit to sharing their progress with one another as accountability partners.

I love how Signature keeps everything positive and helps us focus on the choices each of us has. External factors will always push at us, but I have a new sense of calm and less stress when dealing with obstacles. There is power in owning your position. I’d rather fight for ideas to move the company forward than fight to get my voice heard.
