The program is centered around nine competencies that participants explore through a series of learning modules, and the entire course of the program is expected to last 5-6 months. A global cohort of women based around the world, working together, will work together to share and learn from collective experiences.

These abilities include directness and openness, inspiring and influencing others, effective decision making, professional network development, and continuous development of communication skills.
