Meet Progress: A Spark Labs’ Community
Progress: A Spark Labs’ Community, is a community of women in business including technology, law, finance, retail, consumer expertise and more. We carry the mission of empowering all women (+those that identify as women or wish to) in business by exceptional training, advice, sponsorship, mentorship, advisors, and guidance to increase the number of women moving up the corporate ladder. Progress is an innovative and authentic community built to help community members reach and exceed their goals faster with strong mentorship, sponsorship, education, and community support. With a focus on the ability to bring your “whole and authentic self” to both work and life in this community, Progress: A Spark Labs’ Community, brings a diverse set of individuals to the table in a curated and safe community for learning, building trust, networks and accelerating paths to the C-Suite.
The Progress community is built upon the foundation of women supporting women.
By connecting women with networking opportunities (both online and in-person), training and education, sponsorship and mentorship, and having transparent, diverse and authentic conversations in a safe community, all women benefit by rapid personal and career growth, networking and faster advancement to the C-Suite.
WHO IS THE COMMUNITY BUILT FOR?
Progress: A Spark Labs’ Community, is built by women and for women (+those that identify or wish to identify as women). It is a curated community, which means there is a short form to apply for it. We mainly want to ensure that you are who you say you are and that our resources will be of benefit to you. This community is being built with Fortune 1000 employees, director and below, in mind. We have looked at the research and this is where we find many women (and those that identify as women) leaving not only technology, but business overall, for many reasons that we are aiming to solve for. We want to make sure that we’re providing the resources, educational materials, online event and network that you need to get that manager job and then further accelerate up the ladder your career to the C-Suite.
WHAT BENEFITS DO I GET?
Progress, a Spark Labs’ Community offers many benefits, including educational material, resources, a great network of mentors, advisors and sponsors and much more. We offer an amazing networking platform where you follow and belong to the areas you are interested in. There is a Q&A forum, topic areas that range from communication to promotions to difficult discussions with your boss, and include educational materials and information on being a new manager, negotiating a cross-organizational move - and the tougher topics around harassment in the workplace and how to figure out the best way to resolve it. We also offer interest areas, such as technology, open source, law, finance and more, so you can pick your area of business you want to focus down on - or, you can pick them all. There are limitless opportunities to learn and network. We are building as we grow - and we’d love your insights into what you would like to see!
HOW MUCH DOES THE COMMUNITY COST TO JOIN?
It costs $249 per year to join the community. If you work at a Fortune 1000 company, you can likely either expense this cost with your boss’ approval or you can use a small component of an educational learning fund that you likely have to pay for it, so it should not come out of your own pocket.
