“The CLUB Incubator is an advocacy program. We’re creating a peer group of bright, ambitious, resilient women who are key to the future of Silicon Valley and beyond.”
- Laraine McKinnon, founder of The CLUB’s Incubator program
About the CLUB Incubator Program
The Incubator helps talented women propel their career growth and personal potential. Our annual program begins in January and brings participants ("Incubees") through a structured path of action steps that build purposefully. Key areas of work ("honeycombs") include: furthering your career development, refining your personal brand, expanding your public profile, building out your network, giving back to the community of professional women, and preparing to sit on boards.
Unlike a mentoring or coaching program, the Incubator designs actions on behalf of Incubees to enable recognition for their expertise and leadership. The Incubator inspires women to take their leadership to the next level, and to give back - within the CLUB community and across their own network - to strengthen the pipeline of women leaders.
Ideal candidates have developed their expertise, typically have 12+ years of experience, already serve as role models, and are eager to share their views and expertise publicly.
