2022 SOAR for Black Women

Anchor City: Louisville

We’re striking a balance in 2022! We are eager to resume in-person delivery while accommodating the needs and guidelines of our participating companies. We are excited to offer a hybrid delivery model for this year combining in-person and virtual learning environments. In-person meetings will take place for the Kick-Off Retreat, Meeting 5, and Meeting 9. Meetings 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8 will be virtual. More detailed information is included below. As always, we will continue to monitor the situation and adapt as necessary.

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. For those who cannot attend this in-person cohort, we do offer a virtual program for Black women. Click here to learn more.

Please read the instructions below before completing the registration at the bottom of the page. The registration deadline is Friday, April 15, 2022.
