Check out this amazing video from UPLIFT 2024.


Wow - it’s been a week since wrapping up at UPLIFT and I’m still riding the wave of enthusiasm that I caught while I was there. The pressure to always do more, more, more year after year can be overwhelming. I left UPLIFT feeling inspired and refreshed. I connected with women who filled my bucket professionally and personally, and who I will keep in touch with. Since returning, I find myself emailing and speaking with more confidence. I set boundaries and make quicker decisions instead of dwelling in indecision. I'm already recommending UPLIFT to anyone who will listen.

Register for UPLIFT at Paradise Point in San Diego
on January 23rd & 24th, 2025!

UPLIFT is an intimate, connection-creating experience just for women in development.

Come to San Diego for two days of closed-door, candid conversation to:

  • Connect deeply with ambitious, like-minded colleagues,
  • Find new mentors and/or become a mentor,
  • Identify concrete ways to achieve professional and personal goals,
  • Map a fantastic, satisfying career,
  • Unlock skills and habits to jump-start new levels of achievement.

This is not a conference to just sit and listen. This is two powerful days outside your busy schedule to think big, get creative, make ambitious plans, and talk it out with other women in the trenches.

Every hour brings new tactical tools and open table conversations. By Friday evening, every participant will have talked with, taught, and learned from one another.

Join to create a community of UPLIFT.
