UMBrella Coaching Program

The UMBrella Group, in collaboration with Human Resource Services, offers the UMBrella Coaching Program which aims to engage women and those who identify as 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. The program's first virtual cohort (Cohort 3) kicked off in September 2020 with 12 coaches and over 60 participants representing several schools and units across campus. Each participant is assigned to a coaching group. Groups will meet virtually 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, virtual UMBrella Mixers, a career panel, and closing ceremony.
