"I had the most AMAZING year of action"


XAP Career Development Programs for Women
in partnership with UMass Boston College of Management

You can too. Start here.

I see it all the time…

Women who are working hard – but feel like they’re just spinning their wheels and not getting anywhere.

Women who are talented and smart and yet still struggling to make ends meet.

Women who know that they want more – but not quite sure what that is – or where to start.

I know.  I used to be one of them.


Let’s do something about that.
