my mentor: Courageous Woman is the most accessible and comprehensive solution to female career acceleration. We designed the program with the following in mind:

In order to change the world an inch at a time and reach critical mass, all women anywhere should be able to access the program.

Our program is designed to ensure organisations can cast the net wide and seek out any untapped talent who may be overlooked.

Many of our clients are in the technology industry and as the world becomes more technology focused, it was imperative that our program content was available via a state-of-the-art online learning platform.

We therefore launched the emberin Academy Platform and app in 2016. We recognise that women are busy and often don’t have the time to travel to workshops and events – so we brought it to them. The flexibility of the program enables women to participate when is convenient for them.

The handy app allows participants to listen to the program during their morning commutes or anytime they are on the go.

The program content has a commercial angle – it is designed to bring real commercial results for businesses.

The results are measurable and you can expect to see advancement of women within just three months

Our program is inexpensive per person and we also offer flexible payment options based on your organisation’s requirements.

Whether you’re making payment as an organisation, business units, or individuals, we are able to accommodate.

For the pressed and under resourced HR departments, we offer flexible roll out options where we do all the preparation and facilitation you. You simply get your group together and then get started.
The content was designed to be impactful across multiple seniority levels, however we have found that the sweet spot where the best results are seen is middle management level.

To further enhance the experience and results of our programs, we also offer practical add-ons.
