LOS ANGELES, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Creative + Talent + Partners, a leading employee-training company, in partnership with Verbal Courage, a coaching and training company for women, announced today the launch of Empowership, a comprehensive research-driven professional development program designed to help women across all industries thrive.
Empowership, now open for enrollment, provides companies and individuals with twelve months of development tools, personalized content, group coaching, as well as access to an exclusive "Women of Wisdom" mentorship community led by 25 top women executives from companies such as GTB, IPG, Innocean USA, MullenLowe U.S., RAPP, RPA, Wunderman, and Zambezi.
"I'm honored to support Empowership as a mentor. Helping women grow both personally and professionally is a priority of mine. Creating a culture of inclusion, learning and development is essential to the future of the advertising industry and beyond. When women feel supported, and are provided the resources and opportunity to grow in the workplace, everyone wins," said Jessica Kernan, RAPP's Global Chief Marketing Sciences Officer.
The curriculum for Empowership was developed from the results of a groundbreaking survey conducted by Verbal Courage between July 2016 and January 2017 of more than 250 women across all experience levels in the field of advertising, media and marketing. The goal of the survey was to learn how a woman thrives at work.
"We initiated the survey in a highly challenging industry, advertising, where the pace of business, volume of work and often male-dominated environment poses challenges to most women; however, what we discovered were themes that are universal to women in the workplace, no matter what their industry," said Chelsea Szabo, co-developer of Empowership and Founder of Verbal Courage.
- 98% of women surveyed stated they want more than a paycheck from their job
- 1 out of 3 women surveyed do not identify as thriving
- 80% of non-thrivers said women in leadership roles at their company do not serve as mentors, supporting the women around them
"The insights we gained from the survey confirmed the need for a program like Empowership, which helps companies support their women on a deeper level to overcome personal hurdles, like the inner critic, or work and life integration, to succeed. Empowership, being a full-service program, is perfect for companies because it doesn't exhaust internal resources; and for individuals, it gives them a tangible way to invest in their own long-term development," continued Chelsea Szabo.
Recognizing the gap in the development space around growing female leaders, Empowership provides individuals and companies a comprehensive solution to shaping all aspects of a woman's professional growth.
Cecilia Gorman, co-developer of the Empowership program, who is also a John C. Maxwell certified trainer and the Founder of Creative + Talent + Partners, said, "Empowership digs deep into areas of personal and professional development that most workshops and webinars don't have time to thoroughly cover in a few hours or a few days. It's about surrounding women with consistent training, coaching, mentorship, community and relevant resources all year long."
