SOAR Central – 2021

Anchor City: Louisville

The threat of the coronavirus pandemic continues to alter the traditional ways of doing business. In order to comply with the CDC guidelines and those of our partner organizations, we are delivering our 2021 programs 100% virtually. Where some might find challenges, we see opportunities. By delivering our programming virtually we are able to offer SOAR to more emerging women leaders. In 2021 we are organizing our sessions by region: Midwest, Southeast, Central, West, East, and in-market Jasper, Indiana. One of the strengths of the SOAR program is having a cohort in the same area in which you live and work to help you build a stronger and more strategic network. Each region has an anchor city to help determine the best cohort for you to join. If you’re not sure which is the best region for you, email us and we will help guide you through.

Please read the instructions below before completing the registration at the bottom of the page. Registration deadline is Tuesday, January 12, 2021.

1. Identify the women candidates in the organization for participation. Multiple participants within the company should not be in the same direct reporting line.
