The Chief Member Experience

All of Chief’s services — from Core, to community, to events — are designed to strengthen members’ leadership, magnify their influence, and pave the way to bring others with them to the top.

Personal & Professional Transformation

As a leader, it’s hard to find a place where you can get honest feedback, share real experiences, and gain perspective. Together, Core Group members help one another through confidential challenges and life-changing career breakthroughs.

    A Personal Board of Advisors - In Core, you’ll be matched with a hyper-curated group of powerful executives — 8–12 true peers there to offer support and advice.

    Executive-Level Mindset Shifts - Answer hard questions, uncover weak spots, and hone your leadership acumen in a space that values candor over subtlety.

    Highly Experienced Coaches as Guides - Core Guides foster connection and self-discovery among group members while helping individuals accelerate their journey as a leader.

Meaningful, Multidimensional Connections

Tap into the collective knowledge and support of thousands of women who understand your challenges. Chief’s member-exclusive platform lets you cultivate purposeful relationships and grow your network of executive women locally and across the country.

    An Always-On Forum of Executives - Instantly access the crowdsourced advice of thousands of senior leaders on negotiating, getting on a board, work-life balance, financial planning, and more.

    Influential Introductions - Search for peers via role, industry, location, and company, or expand your personal rolodex with Chief’s personalized member recommendations.

    Connect with other Chief Members over shared interests and identities, no matter where they live, or bring a group together for dinner in your neighborhood.
