UMBrella Coaching Program

The UMBrella Group, in collaboration with Human Resource Services, offers the UMBrella Coaching Program which aims to engage women in a rich program complete with supportive coaches, networking opportunities, and exclusive activities designed to enhance the coaching experience. 

Since launching in 2017, over 150 women have participated in the program. Cohort 3 launches in September. Each participant will be assigned to a coaching group. Groups will meet each month from October 2020 through April 2021 to explore topics including goal-setting, communication, personal branding, and leadership. This year’s program features relevant learning activities, useful self-assessment tools, an UMBrella Mixer event, and Closing Ceremony.
