AVA is an action-oriented learning community for ambitious professional women. We provide an open, honest place to learn and practice the tools and skills you need to Assess, Visualize, and Advance your career.
We are not a fluffy social networking organization. We are not a membership organization. We are not an industry organization. And we are not a micro-learning environment that passively shares skills.
Whether you want to be the best executive assistant, a valued technologist, or the CEO, there are important skills and abilities needed that set you apart and let you take flight. We introduce these skills and help you Assess your current state. We guide you to Visualize where you want to go and which path to take. And we help you Advance by your own definition.
We tackle timely, meaty and complicated skills required for your professional advancement. We offer solution-oriented, macro-learning environments like workshops, spring board discussions, role playing, pair feedback, and other interactive programs.
While our content and programs focus on the obstacles and critical skills for professional women, AVA is open and inclusive to anyone wanting to learn from what we have to offer.
The founders of AVA started it because we wanted to share from our collective professional successes and failures. Each founder has a diverse path to professional success with a wide range of skills, competencies, and capabilities. Between us we have military, non-profit, academia, corporate, global/international, administrative, retail, c-suite, small and large, public and private work experience. Collectively, we have over 80 years of experience, worked in every region of the world, and had every level or responsibility. Personally and professionally we have experienced many of the obstacles and the keys for professional success.
We invite you to come try one of our programs and to follow our social for tips and tools so that you are ready when the time comes to put yourself forward, #advancewithava
