What if I don't have professional leadership experience yet, can I still join?

Yes! It’s open to everyone whether you want to step into management someday or grow as a leader on your team. Whether you work at a startup, medium size company or on a large corporate team, this accelerator is for you.

Why should I enroll?

You’ll walk away with the ability to make more money in your career, grow into a new role and become better at managing people. No matter where you’re starting from you’ll walk away with the confidence that you can get to the next stage of your career. Plus, you’ll be in a fun, safe community of women in tech who are here to cheer you on!

Why Tech Ladies?

As the largest and most trusted community of women in tech, we’ve spent years running events, webinars and conferences (and learning what works best). For this first cohort, we’re hand-picking our most-loved speakers and most impactful topics to create a program unlike any other. 

Are scholarships available?

Many companies will pay for you to take professional development courses, bootcamps, and accelerator programs. So it is definitely worth asking your company if you have this benefit. You can use this template to ask your boss to cover the cost of the program.

What time will the events take place?

Download a copy of the Calendar of Events. All of the events take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12 pm Eastern Standard Time and last for 60 minutes. 

I do not currently work in the Tech industry, but I am ready to grow as a leader and am interested in this program. Should I sign up?

Absolutely! The curriculum for this program is based on universal leadership principles and span industries and backgrounds. Our Accelerator participants also work in various industries, which only adds to the experience as you expand your peer network.

What is your refund policy?

We want your investment in this program to be a complete no-brainer for you! So, if you attend the live workshops, complete your assignments, participate in the 1:1 networking chats, and still don't find the program to be useful, drop us an email and we'll refund your full payment within 14 days of the start of the accelerator. However, please note that this money-back guarantee only applies if you actually do the work and complete your assignments. If you don't do the work, you won't get any value from the accelerator, and you'll have taken a spot from someone who really wanted to join.
